this project is something I newly learnt and practiced about 3 months ago, which is about aluminium tube assembly and joining (which is: RIVETING).
Riveting is very interesting, since the process is quite quick and strong. it is also neat and state of art.
Further benefit: I saved money of around IDR 1,000,000 (US$ 80) with making this myself rather than ordering a welded iron gate. Yet the most interesting this is still I can create is myself; such an excercise, hobby and creativity :)
Ok, let's take a look how I made it:
Constructed the lock handle & safety:
Mounted the padlock on pillar using wood and screw:
the lock from front side:
Joined 2 aluminium square tubes using rivet nail:
Mounted the plastic cover/shield to aluminium square tube using black (UV resistant) Cable Tie:
The other side of rail lock: using Hook to hook metal clamp:
Lower side is the same:
I mounted 4 wheels using screws to the gate base:
What a nice DIY. isn't it? :D
