Hi Dan, apologies for the delayed response, Just returned from a week in Disneyworld (Walked ~3000 miles, need a vacation now
I used the plastic cap roofing nails, the local menards had 2" ones in stock so I used these for both layers, they cause the second layer to "pucker" a little around the cap heads. (they make a 2 1/2" also. but these were not stocked)
I did tack the first layer with a minimun number just to hold it up. I also spotted the first layer and the poly with spray adhesive as I went, this worked well to help hold it up (particullarly the poly) until I put the second layer on.
The spacing is ~ 2 1/2' sq with a cap head in the middle, (like a 5 on a die face) . I held back about 8" or so from the edge of each strip to reduce the "pucker"
Lastly I added a black furring strip around the edge, I think this probably would have been enough to hold everything in place with just a couple of the cap heads and the spray adhesive. If you were closer Id give you the cap heads, I have ~ 1900 left out of the box of 2000 ...
Just an FYI.. The corner traps are frames with 2-1" layers with poly between also, and some fluffy fiberglass stuffed behind.
On another note.. I no longer need to worry about the previous camera. It was mistakenly left in the seat pocket on the Disney safari ride. I picked up a new cyber shot to capture the rest of the trip. This one is far better than the previous one, with 14.1 mp, and it has a cool panoramic feature that automatically stitches the pictures together as you pan.
I'll still be in the market for a good SLR when I get the chance.
TheGeek.. Thanks for the suggestion on the Rigid, I never thought about HD accepting HF coupons.. I found the 20% off coupon online and Ill see if any of the local HD's have one of the saws in stock.
