I very much understand Fred’s concerns. And I share many of them myself. I’m more than willing to admit that I’m stretching my limits here. There’s a world of difference between doing this safely and simply doing it. That’s why I’m here. If you know of someone in the Maine area of the USA that can do this cheaply, great. Please point me in the direction of that option. I really do not want to do this. I have enough projects. But they have no money, And I truly mean that. So here I am.
Having said that, I do actually have a few questions. You guys can chose to answer, or not, as you feel comfortable.
1. You guys say this is difficult for someone untrained. I agree. What’s the mistake I’m going to make? Whats the most common thing to trip me up?
2. Cutting the track…. I got involved because it was too long and they were going to give it away. So I’m sure I can pull the end cap, cut the extrusion and rack to length and reattach the end cap. What do you suggest? I can certainly attempt it on site with a chop saw and decent blade. I also believe I have the ability to have a company with proper milling equipment cut it down. It’s just 4+ hours of driving on my part. So not the perfect option.
Look, I know this is far from ideal. I wish my aunt could pay to get this installed. I wish her kids stepped up to the plate and got involved. But she had a stroke a few years ago now, and has been sleeping on a couch because she cant get to get bedroom since. So I’m just trying to help.
