L shaped plate between the nut and screw. T sliding nut inside slot. Screw bolts using an Allen key. to join two profiles in 90 degree angle four screws and nuts are required. Method #2: Fixing with corner bracket gusset, Tsliding nut and Allen screw. T sliding nut inside slot. Screw bolts using an Allen key. to join two profiles in 90 degree angle two screws and nuts are required. Method #3: Fixing with internal joint connector and headless Allen screw. Joint connector slides inside slot. Screw bolts using an Allen key. to join two profiles in 90 degree angle two headless screws are required. For the frame construction this was used: four 330 mm length profiles series 2020. six 400 mm length profiles series 2020. 16 internal joint connector series 2020 with 2 headless screws each. Use a flat and hard surface, a square set and an Allen key for the screws. slide the joint connector inside the profile, keep the screws a bit loose. Screw bolts, verify that the profiles are 90 degrees angled and have no gaps between each other Place another joint connector to fix another profile to the formed “L”, now there is a vertex with 3 profiles Again the same process with another 2 profiles and joint connector. Add a third profile to the formed “L” Now there are 2 vertexes with 3 profiles each Add a fourth profile to one of the three profile sets Add a fourth profile to other of the three profile sets Join the 2 four profile sets using two joint connectors At this point the structure looks like a 4 leg table Add one by one the 4 remaining profiles to complete the structure, always verifying the 90 degree angle Verify the “leg” measurements also the angles, if needed loose some bolts, correct, and screw again Finished frame, ready for control elements
