DIY [#16] Gear/Kit–Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 RainCover Doors [the donut outfitted], 03/14

No longer hinged–the 3 black polyethylene triangles will be connected using magnets.

Door HubAs I looked for a hinge that I thought would work well, I looked more at latches so that I can easily remove the doors.

Then, I looked at drawer magnets–hum… I have magnets.

Do I cut holes and embed them or mount them on the surface?

I decided to mount them on the outer edge of the disc using a screw, the slot in the magnet and glue.

I have a very solid bond. I use a rubber belt to render an interesting effect.

In the center, I placed a 1.25″ shaft as I did in the cone used to lift the shoulder of the rain cover.

Painted black, it’s nearly ready to be placed on the end if the tripod head.

A magnet for each door [triangle]Each door [triangle] has a magnet on its outside to reduce the magnetic pull. I’ll mount them with Scotch 1-in wide Two-Sided Tape. to model, I’m using double sided mounting tape. Thursday, I’m to receive the polyethylene and cut 3 triangles from the 24″ x 48″ sheet.

Stay tuned…

Cycling ~ RANS Citi Crank Forward–Updated Cockpit, 11/01

Updated CockpitYes, I am riding–more on my Crank Forward than my road bike. I just do not write about it as much as I once did. I have added a few safety items: mirrors & horn/siren. I move my main light from my road bike to the Citi [Faye BTW]. She always had the amber front light and the red tail light. For sure, I should be visible, I can see the path to my front and above all, I can be heard. To be gentle, I use the bell. I still love creating/finishing my cycles. Cycling is an activity I never expect to stop. –jim
