Re: What tools do I use for use with Carinya Make-A-Brackets

Hello @chansom4444

 

Having seen the brackets you will use, you are absolutely correct the holes will not line up. I'm so sorry, but there are no left or right-hand pieces for these brackets. I can only suggest to clip the brackets together and mark the one at the bottom and drill new holes for it. I had thought about trimming the pieces with a tin snip, but that would only benefit you one hole lined up. The other three would still be out of alignment.

 

As an alternative, you can use the Carinya 150 x 40 x 140 x 50 x 1mm L Mending Plate Make-A-Bracket. You can modify this bracket by putting the wider side in a vise or between two pieces of timber and bend one side so it looks like the MABA2441. In this manner, it is already in the configuration that you need.

 

Have a look and tell me what you think.

 

Eric
