Oh yea… what you’re showing has a primary and secondary backing. That is way different than I remember. What I remember was like trying to install a bathroom towel…
The pattern you’re showing there, as I recall, had no secondary fabric backing, just sizing. I would say this is a definite improvement over how they were making it in the 80s. I would certainly use tack strip with that… Sorry for the confusion.
I like confusion. With conversation, were educating the masses!
.......naw, let's be honest, I only care about me.
Today, I used a gallon of gas, 30 minutes drive time to and fro and here's today's total accomplishment. Pathetic isn't it.
I tested leaving a gap and this amount works well with the carpets thickness. Close to 3/8" The gully can be used to tilt the carpet left or right to keep the material centered if need be.
This was just a test.
Had this been an actual installation, I might have completed something.
This post will self destruct in 5 seconds.
The warehouse guy was sick, so Superman to the rescue.
....dat be me.
I had to stop what I'd started, clean up my mess, then race to the warehouse.
There was a tile delivery arriving at 2:00, and someone picking up that same tile at the same time..... That pickup didn't happen until an hour and a half later.
A contractor was supposed to pick up a pallet of tile at the same time. He showed up close to 5pm....
I had just removed the forks and put on the stinger.
So I removed the stinger, put the forks back on, loaded his tile, put the stinger back on to deal with the carpet cuts I made and then proceeded to restacking the pyramid of carpet that I had disassembled.
.......then I removed the stinger and put the forks back on for tomorrow morning. I've got to load 21 boxes of LVP for a property management business.
I locked up the warehouse at 6:00
I hope tomorrow to at least finish the lower flight of stairs.
Film at 11:00
Please Lord, no warehouse duty!
