  1. ToolUse general woodworking tools, electric drill、self drill、countersink、sawing machine….

  2. Cutting processWoodworking cutter speed is about 3600RPM. It needs to use tungsten carbide saw blade which diameter is 10 ~ 12" and sawtooth is 36 ~ 42 teeth, the less tooth of the blade, the easier for the machine to cut-off and discharge residue. When processing, you can spray anti rust oil (WD-40) on the saw blade to avoid crumbs with sticky.

  3. Burrs repairYou can use fine sandpaper, knives or scissors to grind or scrape for cutting off the burrs.

  4. FoundationWith C-type steel (100x50-2.3 mm thick) or steel square tube (1 1/2 "- 2 mm thick) is the best. The thickness of deck board is more than 2.5cm: the interval between the crossbeams is 40cm. The thickness of deck board is more than 2cm: the interval between the crossbeams is 30-35cm.【See the picture above】If it is flat, crossbeam can be directly fixed on the ground.

  5. Fasteners floor fixed methodNeed to use screws, do not use nail gun or nails to fix. Steel structure base with tapping screw, decking foundation use wood screws; Screw specifications for #8 (diameter is about 4.2 mm), the length of the screw should be 2-3 cm longer than fastener; It needs two pieces of fasteners to fix at connection of boards. Also, it needs to be left 2-3 mm gap in winter, but without the gap in summer.
