Following the motto of "give youth a chance" i was able to convince a juvenile young man to try to build the case of a FT 2TL without any help but the blueprint and the raw materials necessary for the construction. The remaining work was done later and with a little guidance.
Kneeling on the floor and applying the glue with both hands, our candidate started with glueing the sidewall to the rear after a quick reading of the blueprints.
The lid is forcing the front to stay in the right angle, the base boards of the midrange case makes the inner board keep the distance ov 15cm to the front and lid.
Joint glue is applied to the edges of lid and the seperating boards as well as on the TL boards. Then carefully put the middle board into place.
Since the seperating board in the middle is used to lead the soundwaves it is of utmost importance that it fits perfect. One does not need to concern oneself with the last little mm but if one takes care, one does not have to fear any bad consequences of irregularitys. The same is true for the rear wall, that should be flush with the outlet.
The second side is put into place last. It does not hurt if one takes care that the case is flush all around. The usage of the hands to feel any holes and irregularitys is especially advised, but not only, if it is too dark to properly see such.
If the work has been done properly, one can rest on the casing without any problems. After only one hour the construction was complete and the casing ready to get sanded and milled.Back to: Build a Duetta Go to: Assembling > Flat-TL
