Aluminum continuous hinges for hatches. 1/2 the price as the brass plated steel (which will start rusting) from Lowes/Home Depot etc. 1/2 price more than covers shipping, especially on the 3 ft. lengths. Excellent service from these guys as well.

Hopefully this will help some of you guys with cutting aluminum up to 1/4 inch.

I installed aluminum patio covers and carports once upon a time and I used a plywood circular blade from HomeDepot on our table saw and skill saw. It was lubricated with a waxy lubricant that came in a cardboard tube like a grease gun cartridge. We got the lubricant from the Skill service center but any hard ware or lumber yard store should carry the lubricant. It is a bees wax and paraffin base and commonly used when cutting wood. Straight paraffin will work also and is available from most grocery stores.

Before you make the cut in the aluminum you carefully run the lubricant into the teeth of the running blade. Refresh every 30 to 40 inches or as needed.

Here is a link where you can find it:

I used a very similar product for my decks. Aluminum decking is much lighter and a lot stronger than plywood. It has good slip resistance (but is a little hard on bare knees). I thought the cost was reasonable, and it finished out well. I also liked that I could apply camo paint to my decks, as well.

Amazing carpet for the price... purchased the 6' x 20' and wish I got the 8'6" x 25' for my 14.5' build. Goes quick with all of the cuts and what not.


I believe I just bought the exact same brand carpet at menards, I got 6'x25' for about 60 bucks. It's on sale right now.

decking. best thing i found is called alumalite. theres a local sign company that uses it for signs. its aluminum with plastic in the middle. about a quarter inch thick and super strong. with good bracing it doesnt give a bit and its light. when the sign company replaces the signs they sell the old ones. may have some reality add or something on it but its covered with carpet. best thing is cost 14 bucks for a 4x8 sheet. if your around north alabama , the company i get mine from is shepard sign in madison.

I've been buying a lot of fasteners from these guys last couple of years. Great selection of Stainless

has anyone used those ? quality ? amount of light they put out ? I want to order like 20 of them but dont want to waste my money.
I got a pack of 8 of the blue led ones for $10, I've installed 3 so far and they work great. They are wires at both ends so you can chain them for longer stretches. The only thing I'm worries about is if the adhesive on the back will hold up over time. But the light output is extremely useful.
