Repair is a positive event, but one always wants to speed it up, and the use of various devices will certainly help. Two hours spent on the assembly of scaffolding will certainly pay off. By the way, no stepladder or stool will replace a reliable and convenient "goat".The process of assembling scaffolding, which is also called" goats "," goat "," table ", can be divided into three stages: 1. procurement of materials, 2. preparation of parts for assembly, 3. assembling.
Preparing the necessary materialsSometimes a good table for work can be literally collected from the rubbish that lies under your feet. However, the scaffolding must meet at least some minimum requirements:
- The height of the table must be such that you do not have to reach for the ceiling or bang your head against it;
- length and the width of the "goat" should be suchso that there was no need to constantly move it, but in the door and the turns the table should pass without problems;
- the most important factor is its reliability, but the mass of forests should not exceed the capacity of one person, so that you do not have to constantly ask someone for help with movements.
Preparation of blanksThis process must begin with the assembly of the countertop, as its dimensions will determine the size of the scaffold. In addition, all the other elements will be attached to the worktop. If the door leaf is used as the table top, it is desirable to remove all the protruding parts - pens, hinges, etc. from its working surface. If necessary, the door can be cut with a simple hacksaw or jigsaw. If the "goats" are needed very small, then from one door you get as many as two worktops. In the absence of a door leaf, you have to mount a frame for the table top. And this will be the first step in assembling scaffolding. But it is more convenient to sheathe this framework at the very end of the whole process.
After cutting one leg of suitable length,the rest must be measured and noted precisely for it, so that their length is exactly the same. After that, the legs are screwed to the tabletop frame, putting it on the floor. By the way, if the floors are quite flat, then it is very convenient to level the tilt of the legs using a building level or a plumb line. It is desirable that the legs were strictly vertically. Diagonal and horizontal jumpers do not need to be specially harvested, it is much easier to cut off the excess after installation.
