Hi All - I would like to build a structure using Carinya Make-A-Brackets and just wondering what tools I should use to:
a: cut them to size
b: join different brackets together.
Would I be right in saying tinsnips for cutting and a pop rivet gun for joining? If so what size rivets should I use?
Thank you kindly
Welcome to Workshop @davidjono. We're pleased to have you join us. What are you planning to build?
We trust that you'll get loads of helpful information, advice and inspiration for your projects from our clever and creative members for this project and many others to come in the future. Feel free to post anytime you need a hand with anything around the house and garden.
Hey @Jason thank you for the warm welcome.
I'm looking to build a diorama (approx 40cm X 30cm X 40cm) and as i'm currently stuck at home I can't go in-store to ask any questions so don't want to order the wrong tools.
Looking forward to seeing the diorama. It would be great if you could share it once finished as there's going to be many community members and visitors alike looking for project inspiration in the coming days and weeks.
Welcome @davidjono, to the Workshop Community. Many thanks for your question, I'd be happy to answer it for you.
If you will be bending any angles you may like to consider a pair of Long Nose Pliers.
Please note the Rivet Gun Set has a small variety of rivets included. You may wish to purchase more to suit your project needs.
We will be very interested to see the progress and completion of your diorama, so please do keep us posted.
If there is anything else I can assist you with feel free to let me know. Thanks again for your question.
Awesome thanks for the help @MitchellMc - greatly appreciated!
Hey guys, wondering if someone can tell me how to join the brackets it a L shape? the holes are drilled 20mm apart on one axis and 25mm apart on the other.
Im actually trying to join 2 L shaped brackets together at a right angle. Maybe @MitchellMc can help me?
I must be missing something really obvious.
Thanks for sharing that question about the Carinya brackets. Would it be possible for you to tell us which model you are currently using to build your project? Once we have that information we can then make recommendations on how to assemble your proposed bracket.
We would love to see what you're currently building. Perhaps we can offer suggestions on alternative bracket configurations.
Hi Eric @EricL (and Jason),
It is just a bracket to hold a hose in place. 2 L-shaped brackets (MABA2441) joined to make a larger L on one (horizontal) plane and then a flat bracket (MABF2042) to make the vertical plane to connect to a circular hose clip.
All of the holes on these pieces will only align in a straight line - I can't even join them at a right angle because the drilled holes don't match.
Is it possible there are "left hand" and "right hand" pieces to accommodate this?
thanks for your advice. Craig
