Guide to Fabricating NovaComp

  • Rivet the back section together (NOV 415) on each end. Place on bench and place supports in each section, the double supports go each end and a single level with each open end, and one centrally. Secure with 2 rivets / screws (ensure supports are square) then turn over and square again and place 2 rivets in back to secure.
  • Make up the vinyl bar (NOV 403), secure the ends with countersunk screws. Place on brackets and ensure the square ends line up exactly with the rear section (NOV 415) Fit with rivets once in place.
  • Fit cover plate (NOV 414) secure 100mm in from each end and corner. Also, secure at every bracket. Drill a 3.5mm hole on the v-groove in the sunken part of the section.
  • A sleeve section or plate should be fixed where open ends meet to ensure the front bar (NOV 403) line up exactly.
  • The back panel fits between the pips on the back section cut 59mm less that overall height and width of box. 0.6 – 0.9mm white one side recommended.
