I'm with you Cindi on this one. I am totally helpless in the building arena. That is why I have to purchase everything assembled.

I know this is an older thread but I couldn't find one that addressed gluing the aluminum cover. What if any adheasive is used to glue the top? I know the ends and sides would be stapled or nailed.

Thanks,

GW

No glue is needed if you staple the edges.

so how would you use that to fold something 20" long? fold once then slide it down to fold again?


Cut the metal with good long tin snips fold with one of these:

Did I mention I do sheetmetal fabrication for a living?
