Custom Maid Shroud using Rubbermaid lid - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Thread Starter 
Yeah I would have gone with something else like plexie glass, but I saw a Rubbermaid lid, needed a shroud made, and had an idea, tested it with paper, and then tested the material, and well... Ta-da. But if everything looks good at the end I may create version 2.0 who knows

You'll just have to wait and see what I've come up with.

you mean something kinda like this?



Much easier to make, it's like putting together crown molding. And look at the sexiness. Again, I did not come up with that, and i didn't take those pictures. I plan on building something nearly identical but for 3x120mm not just 2. I was upset someone beat me to punch, kinda, but it's always good to see good ideas i come up with at work are come up with by other people as well.

Hey thats looking really good...On job sites if you look around you should be able to find some coil stock scrap you could make it out of to, if you wanted a heavier one..The heating and AC guys use it for duct work, and the roofers use it for valley flashing...You have to sand the galvanization off it before you paint it but its a thin layer anyway..The valley flashing is easier to work with since its a little thinner...You can buy it in different sized rolls at most hardware stores cheap to....

Cut it out just like you did the plastic, you could use that one for a template..I bend mine between a couple of 2' roofing squares C-clamped together, bends real well like that....

Have you ever used "Goop" contact adhesive? Its great stuff, a guy turned me onto it a few years ago and I use it on almost everything...Its only $5 bux or so a tube, there are several different types including one for plumbing...I use the RV kind most of the time since it water-proof...But long story short if you use it on thin metal like coil stock and C-clamp it over night you have to separate the pieces with a knife it holds it so well...Its as handy as duct tape and zip-ties....

The DAP product is Auto/Marine Sealant It works good cause it stays pliable pretty much indefinitely. You'll get a good bond, but it's kinda rubbery in nature, which is actually good cause it deals with vibration etc better that way. And honestly, i probably would go with something different for glue, i have so many different types it's kinda hard to pick which, but gasket sealant might work nice, as well as gorilla glue, superglue (you would have to rough the edges a bit to get a really good bond) and yeah, i have some Goop downstairs, in a few different formulations

We have many differant jobsites we go to, right now I'm at a Lacks Furniture Warehouse were the building is about to open on the 17th. Right now were just doing a punchlist, and finishing up on some wallpaneling with chair-rail, but long story short Lacks is pretty much complete, so there isn't any material on the job at this point. Waiting until then to finish there which should be tomarrow, then I'll be going to a elementery school thats nowhere near complete. So that will be fun.

I was wondering how you bent your shroud together. I wanted to buy some sheet metal but i've never messed around with metal in this manor so I was afraid I would mess it up somehow.

lesstutrey i've thought about superglue, but cring at the idea. I have so many things I could use from work. I could use Liquid Nail, Stainable wood glue, form fill... LOLno actually thats bad, bad, bad.

Edit: Ira-K - What would be the mix ratio?

So the plexi turns into a liquid and then can be used for an adhesive or something?
