The assembly instructions had me using a bolt, two washers, and a locknut on each leg to hold it in place. Problem is, that means that the legs will wear on the sideplates. Not a good idea. I bought 8 more flat stainless steel washers and slipped those washers in between the legs and the sidepanels. Now the legs will wear on the washers instead of the sideplates. This makes the leg securing assembly consist of the bolt head, washer, sideplate, washer, leg, washer, other sideplate, washer, then the locknut. So each of the legs now has 4 washers: two washers on the outside of the side panels, and two washers to keep the leg from rubbing on the sidewall directly. Again, don't overtighten, or the workbench won't fold up.
So first thing you want to do to get started is to cut the flaps free at the top and the bottom of the box so the flaps remain intact. Find the seam where the machine glued the box together and cut along the crease originally made when the box was assembled. Don't bother trying to save the flap here as it usually tears the veneer from the corrugation.
Last but not least, if you are on a tight budget, then consider a bag of gourmet coffee. Not just any brand, but the good stuff. Go on-line and search out key word terms like "organic, fair trade coffee" or "gourmet organic coffee." You can guarantee the more certifications the better the coffee, at least in most cases. Then purchase a bag with the roast level of his preference. Or if you aren't sure, then get a bag of each roast level and let him choose which one he likes best.
I have managed to get fairly smooth finishes by polishing the surface prior to my first coat and building up the paint in light layers. I also sometimes use flat paints and a final gloss coat that usually results in a smooth finish. There really is not a science to good paint finish; it is more of an art that each person develops on their own.
The first step is to decide where we are going to put our solar panels. A open piece of land next to the house our a good spot on the roof. You will want to make sure that your panels can use as much of the suns daylight as possible. The more sun light we can utilize the more power our panels will put out for the day. With our building area picked out we can now get started on our solar DIY project.
Router: 1 1/2 to 2 HP find a good used one, unless it's been dropped and kicked around a lot a good router lasts a long time, two things to look for first brushes that can still be bought and easily changed and two both a 1/4 and 1/2 inch Collete. a router that uses only a 1/4 Collete is of very limited use. if you can a new router of good quality can be bought for $100.00 and you really don't need a plunge router ( but they are nice ).
