Tie down solutions for roll off roof?

Posted By Paul Webb

Anjal, I used modified 3" wide rachet tie downs (like the ones used to tie down a boat on a trailer) and large eyebolts. You may have to cut the tie downs to the required lenghts then sew them back together. I had a person with an industrial sewing machine sew the cut pieces together. Hope this helps. Good luck! I can send you pix. Paul

A few years ago I bought some 1/4" medium density white foam that I used to line my refractor box. Due to a computer crash, the information was lost as to suppliers. Also, with that purchase I obtained some 2" thick foam for EP cases. Can anyone lead me to a source of said foam?

I do some public outreach events and enjoy the questions and comments. When at my observatory, a good single malt and hand made Dominican in silence keeps me focused.
No pun intended. wink Paul
