catch cover cutout dimension

Recommended Posts

Ive ordered the catch covers and should be here this weekend. However, if they do not make it this weekend I still want to cut the holes in the floor so I can progress with the floor insulation and fastening and move on to the walls. So does anyone know the dimensions that I need to cut out? Is it 12" 13" or what?

thanks

You'll need to cut your holes 12.5". Also, remember to cut your holes far enough away from walls, benches etc. to be able to get your auger in so it's perpendicular and not banging against anything. We recommend the center of the hole be at least 9" away from anything which might get in the way of your auger (more if possible.)

thanks matt.

oh yeah, you mentioned the center of the hole being at least 9" from the wall. That may not hold true for corner holes if you have a power auger. just thought I would throw that out there for others that are cutting there holes.

I learned this the hard way in my previous perm. smile.gif Only had a hand auger when I built it and it worked fine with hand auger, but not when I upgraded to a power. The way I measured my auger, I need to have center at least 9" from one wall and 13" from the other on a corner hole to be safe.

Actually,
just to clarify, on a 12" hole, 9" away on center works for a corner hole if you are using an 8" or under power auger.

However, as Matt stated, further away IS better.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
