This morning relaxation. I want to take some of my vacation.
But this afternoon, return to the mod. Few shopping to find plexi for glazing the left side door.
First disappointment: no 3mm plexi stock in both DIY stores near my home. Okay, I took 5mm.
But why take a leaf 1mx0, 5m for an area of 0.5 mx0, 5m max?
Already because no sheet 0,5 x0, 5m and also because I have an idea of make complex for the first time.
So far provide a bit more.
I trace the contour of the hole of the door
Then a second slightly larger
"Are you sure of what you do"
Yes I'm sure .... almost. I'll try to cut beveled extra space for the glass fits well in the small bulge of the door.
Go Mr Zam bringest me Dremell
"Cool the machine precision. But!!! This is not a true Dremell"
Stop quibbling. It has the same function for a unbeatable price. I just hope it will not broil!!!
Go, first cut, slow speed and ..... it is not easy to properly cut the plexi.
The result is not great.
Desperate times to large ways
But this time equipped with a smooth diamond blade (to cut the tiles).
The result is stunning. You can see the difference between the pseudo-Dremell and grinder / diamond.
"The cut is really cleaner. Very well diamond blade"
Once the round is complete, I attack the bevel. Not easy, freehand, work on plexi with an angle.
And VLAN! it went wrong! the wrong side. The plexi is fuc*** up, I can not put it on the door, this error is too visible.
I do not lose courage, but with the other plexi, I'll go easier.
I "released" the bulge and I cut a large square covering the surface, which will be at the right level.
The diamond cutting disc is fast and clear. A few strokes of the file to clean the edges and a little test to see what it looks like
We fix the window?
Not so fast Mr Zam. You're really in a hurry. We must first put the vinyl on the door.
Then laying the vinyl (we will pass details) and bonding of the glass.
I am preparing my surfaces by cleaning the door, I removed the protective film from the plexi (side that will be glued) and I still have a clean shot glass.
I have then glue on the four sides of the door, I put the plexi and I press hard. I use clamps to hold the pressure.
Heavy objects can also do the trick.
"WAHOUUU !! too strong. Now we can see in the box"
