Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

It will soon be Camper aedificavit domum's birthday I was looking at the first page of the thread and it is dated 6th June 2017, so next week I will have been building for 3 years :roll: Not something to be particularly proud of other than, "Success consists of going from failure to failure without...

My search for a suitable grommet (eyelet)

In the process of trying to make my own side awning, I came up against a problem finding and using satisfactory tie-down grommets. I would like to point out that this is purely my own experience and the results, good or bad, could be just down to my procedures. This is just a record of my journey to...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

This cold spell has allowed me to concentrate on moving the awning forward. The material is 1600mm wide and I cut it 3000mm long. I had intended to sew together 2 panels to make it about 3 meters square but trying to machine down the middle of such a large area on the dining room table with a domest...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

I must admit discretion before valor these days. :roll: I used to enjoy a little go but it's now invaluable when it comes to moving heavy items about. Fence panels, bits of the camper, bags of sand, etc. Although it does go well on the block paving :lol: never did manage to stand up on this, Knee wa...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

At last, the awning fabric has arrived :roll: Ive got the piping and the awning rail. Just got to learn how to do it. :lol: Tests on annealing the brass eyelet have a good result although I will need to get the Brasso out before I do it for real. https://i.ibb.co/3cW1W6D/IMG-1067.jpg https://i.ibb.c...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

I need 2 more sheets of PVC but the shower/toilet door will be taped up and fitted as shown in the pictures. I can open it and walk around it to access the cubicle so I'm happy :) ( well I will be with the PVC ;) ) https://i.ibb.co/nnZLF0C/IMG-1061.jpg https://i.ibb.co/yVjzmQx/IMG-1059.jpg Slow prog...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

My Hermes is my nemesis. The awning material was ordered on the 24th of April on a 3-day delivery service. I subsequently ordered Aluminium awning rail, piping to fit, V92 sailmakers thread, and a spring-loaded door catch all of which have been delivered. Two were actually delivered by Hermes today....

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Nice day today so I started cutting up some of the box and angle. I just rough cut and marked it up to be able to final cut and fit inside the camper if the weather changes. My intension was to make the shower booth door from a 25mm box frame but had second thoughts. I had been giving some thought t...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

The last of the Aluminium arrived this morning. Well, I hope it is. That brings the total cost of box section and angle to £445.00. I also received a couple of door hold back catches to fit when the rain goes away. All that is outstanding at the minute are 5 meters of 8mm awning rail with its matchi...
