to Build Form Panels
Westcon form panels are easily built. Rout 1/4" x 1" tie slots
in 3/4" plywood. A template out of 1/4" plywood 6" x 7" cut-outs
centred over the location where the tie slots are to be cut.
A 6" x 6" x 1/4" block fastened to the face of an electric
router using a 1/4" carbide bit will cut the tie slots the
required size, 1/4" x 1" . 4' x 8' outside panels may be used
if desired. (To see the details of these illustrations, click
Westcon ties can, if desired, be used without plywood panels.
Ties can be slipped between common board and steel bars set
vertically, eliminating most of the nailing and walering required,
compared to previous methods.
