Somehow I wangled a video camcorder way back in the dark ages of 1994-ish.
I may have actually rented it from some now defunct upstart video rental place.
Corner Bar In Fiberglass Shower Stall
Grab Bar Installed With No Tile Damage
From the custom job files……….
Job Shop fabricated stainless steel grab bars for a fiberglass shower stall and fully tiled bathtub.
The challenge was to install completely functional safety bars without damage to the existing tile or fiberglass.
The solution was to weld the custom shaped handlebars to a wall-plate which was drilled in place with attachment holes to bolt the entire assembly directly to the wall studs.
The completed bars easily supported the full weight of a 300 lb male engaged in strenuous push-ups and other suspension exercises.
Apparently there is a worldwide shortage of long arm, long throat, long reach paper hole punch gizmos for the paper crafts industry.
So the research department here at the International Handyman Headquarters developed a couple of prototypes in the shop just to see what it would take to make a workable device.
After some fits and starts and a little by-guess and by-golly I came up with two models made from wood scraps and commonly available hardware store parts.
Steel Buildings have been part of the Military Environment for at least 50 years now.
In my time as an old Seabee I had my encounters with the Butler Building style of assembly after the legendary Quonset hut retired.
But the first I learned of the Butler Building’s successor—the modern Steel Building–was this Quonset style hut built from a completely different design.
This 30×60 open span building is assembled from pieces-Erector Set Style- all of which fit on a pallet small enough to be transported on a flat bed truck.
Each arch in the video was assembled in five sections with nothing more than ordinary bolts and a wrench.
My primary task on this job was to ensure the base plates were laid out perfectly square so the precision pieces would fit as designed.
On that score I am pleased to say the building fit together well.
If you need an inexpensive farm building that assembles with minimum skill and can be erected fairly quickly, the Erector Set Style building may be for you.
Tell the truth, you have always wanted to know how to punch a hole through a thick metal railroad track with no burrs, metal chips or messy drills.
Me too. And now we know. ( Is it me or have I become obsessed with hole punch equipment?)
