Step 1: Materials and Tools Needed.
Materials: all material sizes are given in millimetres.
P.V.C. building moulding angle 47mm x 47mm x 4mm. (Available in lengths of 2.8m to 4m)
screws for mounting
masonry wall plugs if mounting to brick wall.
assorted drill bits
conical grinding bit
multi-tool with cutting and sanding attachments
fine grade file.
Step 2: Measure and Cut to Size
Using a multi-tool or fine toothed saw, cut to the marked length.
Use the multi-tool with sanding attachment, smooth the cut surface.
Step 3: Mark Mounting Points.
Mark the mid-line at 60mm intervals.
Each of these points represents one accessory mounting point.
Step 4: Drill Pilot Holes
Step 5: Measure to Calculate the Mount Hole Size.
This is to establish the final size of the hole required for mounting point.
This will also be the width of the channel to be cut into the moulding.
Step 6: More Drilling, Then Mark the Channels.
Repeat, until the mount hole is the the size of the connector as measured in the previous step.
Mark the channels to be cut, by drawing from the outside edge of each hole to the edge of the material. These channels need to be marked at 90 degrees to the edge of the material.
Allow an extra millimetre to allow the accessory to move easily in the channel
Step 7: Enlarge the Mounting Holes to the Required Size.
Step 8: Cut the Channels.
Step 9: Rounding Off the Sharp Corners.
Use a fine file or the sanding attachment on your multi-tool to remove the sharp corners.
Step 10: Add Holes for Screws to Attach to Wall, Fence Etc.
Mark a point 90 mm from each end.
Drill holes for the mounting screws at these points.
Step 11: De-burring to Remove All Sharp Edges.
Step 12: Attach to Wall or Fence, Add Your Watering Accessories.
1. position in a sheltered spot. This will ensure your organizer will last and will extend the life of the o-rings on the accessories.
2. choose appropriate hardware to attach to the wall or fence surface.
