Help with 3ft halfpipe

Postby ayjay on Sun Feb 01, 2009 1:37 am

Hey guys im planning on making a mini halfpipe 3ft with 4ft extension does anyone know how far up the 2x4 i put the pin to do the transition? Also my dad reckons i should coat it with flooring paint because its going to be outside and he thinks that floor paint will help against scuffing and light damage.

When you say how far up the 2 x 4 to put the pin. i am guessing you mean to draw your transition. if so you need to know what transition radius you want to answer that question. for the string and pencil way you would put the screw up at the height that you want you tranny to be . for example if you wanted a say 6' tranny you would put the screw up 6' + the height of you framing. with a 2x4 flat frame you would set it at 6' 3.5". Hope this helps .
