    Nicely done on the garage LR. Needless to say, I won't be posting a picture of mine.

    I had used the Home Depot epoxy flooring on my previous garage which made it nice, but it did begin to peel in some places. Good choice on the industrial strength.

    Thumbs up

    GREAT!! I am glad I could pass along something useful. I have learned so much from the members of this forum and am glad that I can return some of that knowledge (not sure that sounds right but I am going with it). I will have a rolled hem vid up by Mon or Tues of next week and will try to get out some more on a semi-regular basis.

    I would love to see some pics of your cutting jig and maybe a response video to my original.

    I don't think I could cut that slowly. I use a 140w soldering gun with a tile cutting tip.

    It heats up/cools off quickly and cuts much faster. I don't worry about my aluminum straight edge sucking the heat away.

    Not much to show on the jig just two 1x2x66" screwed togeather at the ends for positioning. The upper was offset 1/4 to1/2", just eyeballed, forming an angle to run the iron tip along. The boards are cedar, love the smell of burning cedar. Did use some clamps to maintain pressure thru the center. I'll try to post pic's later. Got some honey do's this am.

    OK CW. Waiting on estimates on the honey do, turned out to be a bigger job than I want to do, so here are some staged pics.The 1st is the setup to cut, 2nd fabric folded back, 3rd is the set back on the top board.

    It involved crawling around in the attic in the summer in Florida, not something for a 60 year old. Past the luck stage and into the how much stage.

    another tool that works equally well for this application is an electric hot knife, I have used this one from HF to cut all kinds of synthetic materials, works very well.

    I will make short work of ropes, foams, synthetic fabrics, etc... I like the long flat blade....
