/ Fingerboard powerbar mounting - my effort
Thoughts or appraisal?
I would suggest padding the contact points above the door frame (other side of the door from your pic). Mine punctured the wall after a while!
It does look good.
Although as you said, I think I would have the same problem and pull the door frame off. Mine appears to be just a fascia plate nailed up acting as a door frame.
I made a frame to hang down from the loft hatch, so I can use it and put it away easily afterwards. I would post a picture but not sure how to do it on here.
Here you go Big Z, hopefully this works:
Hopefully these give you some ideas. The idea was to allow it to be put away easily after finishing with it, which is where the metal tubes come in. They slide in and out allowing the board to be held up and then removed afterwards. I have some rough plans (not to scale) I created on powerpoint if you want a copy.
Didn't have access to facebook earlier, so thought I'd post my similar solution for a beastmaker.
The link doesn't seem to be working fella.
Think it was set to private....made the photo public now...
Yeah it's working now thanks. Looks good, I was tempted by getting that type of mounting, but I was unsure of the door frame taking the weight, hence building my own mounting.
Some neat and attractive handiwork there. Major problem with all of them though is the boards are far too clean...
I'll post my rough-but-functional rental friendly solution later. It basically eliminates any fear of collapsing door frames though.
