No kidding. I see sledge hammers being used to remove old kitchen
cabinets. I have renovated a few kitchens and felt it was much easier
to remove 2~4 attachment screws, per cabinet, and carry the cabinet out
whole. They still have to remove the attachment screws when destroying
depends on the someone
i can imagine a couple of scenarios
i think it is glued together and it is too heavy to carry sorry i cannot help
i think it is glued together i can make the pieces so they will fit
through the door or smaller and then we can glue it back together
it is too big to move i think we leave it here and i never liked it
anyway since it has gotten to be wobbly over the years and we
could never figure out how to tighten it up
we should put it on craigslist and tell them to bring strong people
and a good dolly
no one will ever think hey it is using the invis system and absolutely
no one will have that magnetic tool
They would be handy for upper end displays like those used at
conventions that are assembled and disassembled often . But obviously
the person doing the dismantling would have to know where all of the
fasteners are located.
I am a little sceptical of that(*), but also bear in mind
that that's just a tad over 500lbs, which isn't much. You
can get 1000lbs clamping force with a regular Jorgensen bar
clamp, and several tons with a 3/4 pipe clamp.
(* that's about 1/3 the shear strength of the screw, if I'm
not mistaken, so it's in the realm of what a human with a
screwdriver could accomplish.)
Why? Banisters have been made for centuries without that system,
it seems hard to think of a good reason to use it (other than to
show off, I guess).
I think the actual problem you'd have is the two metal pieces
have to be absolutely perpendicular to the surface to get a
tight joint. Which basically means you have to drill all the
holes on the drill press.
Dowels tend to do that too, but at least you have a little give
with them to accomodate minor errors. That thing is effectively
a steel dowel when it's joined, and there's no give.
Well, I can think of good reasons to use power tools (less
sweating onto the workpiece, for example). I'm not seeing
a good reason why this expensive and complicated fastner is
better than traditional ways of fastening the parts of a
