Bjurt Yurts - Documentation - Fasteners
The last step was calculating the bjurt dimensions.
Fasteners are needed to attach
Fastener kits will soon be available for purchase on the products page. Alternatively you may assemble your own set. Its important to check that the set fits your choices of pole widths. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a fastener set for your bjurt.
Since the holes in the bjurt connectors are all 1/4 diameter, all fasteners should be 1/4 diameter. Fastener lengths depend on pole width and attachment point.
Which fasteners to use?
Whichever type of fasteners you decide on, make sure to bring spares for everything, especially the vertical and horizontal braces. These are taken off and put back on, increasing wear which can eventually strip threads and bend pins.
The following is an inventory of the number of pins, clips, and related hardware
that would be required:
Assuming the same size pole stock is used for the entire structure,
a bjurt built with 1/2" EMT would require 16 x 2", 8 x 1 3/4", 64 x 1
3/8", 88 washers, and 88 hitch clips. A bjurt built with 3/4" EMT
would require 16 x 2", 8 x 2 1/4", 64 x 1 5/8", 88 washers, and 88
Now that you've got your bjurt size, connector kit, and fasteners figured out,
you'll want to get down to work by cutting and drilling
your pole stock.
