简介:单板蝙蝠盒

关于:小工具粉丝,木工,摄影师,丈夫,骑自行车的人,皮划骑士,骑真正的啤酒饮用者做了一些巨石。

我一直是制作一个蝙蝠盒一段时间,当这场比赛弹出时,我认为它会成为一个伟大的项目,我可以用手工具做一个伟大的项目。

I took the basic plans from thisRSPB网站, it's a fairly simple one plank build.
我很幸运能够住在一个非常好的木材商人附近,他们携带一大群粗糙的木头。我买了2 x 4000 mm的长度150 mm宽x 22 mm厚,该计划是制作其中一个蝙蝠盒,只使用手动工具为本比赛,然后使用我商店的所有工具敲除3或4。

在制作这个项目中使用的唯一动力工具是我的汽车。

补给品:

1长度未经处理的粗糙锯木150 mm宽x 1100 mm长x 22 mm厚。
Hand saw
手钻
螺丝刀
卷尺
Square
打磨块
斯坦利刀
6毫米木凿
木材胶水
20+#8 x 50 mm螺钉
木材填充物
Wood primer
完成涂料

第1步:5简单的切口

如果您从一块正确的宽度开始,则将盒子的碎片相当简单。

从RSPB布局的计划之后,第一个切割是最棘手的,首先标记两侧的长度。当削减时,试图确保它们是正直(90º),因为这将有助于您获得更好的关节。

因为这是粗糙的锯材木材,毕竟是切割的所有部分,我砂下了所有的边缘。

Step 2: Making the Landing Strip

为了让蝙蝠更容易进入我在篮板中切割一个微小的蝙蝠梯子。

要做到这一点,我在董事会划分了几毫米的两条线,我然后骗了这一点。

这再次被打磨块快速擦拭。

第3步:制作盖子

The next step is to make the lid.

I clamped all the parts minus the lid together, then laid the lid won the side outside the backboard this allowed me to mark the angle I needed to plane.

Using a recently sharpened block plane I was able to put the angle on the lid making sure I stuck to the marked angle.
我留下了盖子的前面而没有角度,因为这会让雨水溢出前方。

遵循与切割蝙蝠梯子相同的方法,我在背板中添加盖子宽度槽,盖子可以楔入该槽中,以加入盒子的防水和防脱纸。

Step 4: Hand Drill

我的第一个问题是,我不拥有一个手钻,也没有我的邻居。

Good news... my dad had one on his boat... Bad news... It was on his boat, covered in rusty gunk and unused for years, this thing hardly turned so my first hour was spent stripping it, cleaning and giving it a grease.

在这个阶段,我真的很遗憾我的动力钻孔,手动钻孔是一种耗时的任务。

通过所有所说的,我使用了一个组合钻头和柜台钻头,使20个固定孔穿过侧面和盖子。
To make sure I got the fixing holes centred in the receiving piece I marked the wood width by tracing along an off cut.

第5步:组装

The assembly of the box is a simple task.

需要一些精度的唯一位是将边置在正确的位置。将大量木材胶水涂在篮板的一侧,侧面将接触。将侧面的顶部与槽底切割成顶部,拧入到位。重复另一方。

将胶水涂抹在前一块并拧到侧面之间。

It might be overkill but I decided to scuff up the inside back wall and inner lid, this was aid the grip for the bats.

将盖子粘在盒子前面的盖子中,确保将停止的顶部边缘与侧面的顶部保持一致。

胶水并拧到顶部,以确保将插槽粘在后面的槽中并将顶部放入槽中。

第6步:填充和沙子

使用木材填充物,我填充了所有螺孔和关节间隙。
将它留过夜以在第二天硬化我将它砂光全部平坦。

在绘制之前,我钻了3个安装孔,两个安装孔,在蝙蝠梯子下面有一个。

第7步:底涂层

Being as this is going to be mounted outside in the always beautiful British weather I decided to paint the box.

我做了一些研究,以确保它是可以的(从蝙蝠的角度来看)画盒子,我发现的大多数信息都是,只要内部仍然没有漆,就会很好地涂漆。

I masked off the entrance slot with some Frogtape and gave the box two coats of exterior undercoat.

第8步:最终外套

一旦底涂层干燥,我就发布了盒子,它是最终喷涂黑色缎面的涂层。


我希望这种指示赋予你一些想法和灵感来制作自己的蝙蝠盒。这些惊人的小生物需要我们可以给予他们的所有帮助。
不要忘记小型管道士是最常见的英国蝙蝠,重约5克
(与20p块相同)。单个管主角可以在一晚上吃3,000个小昆虫。更多蝙蝠=少虫子。

    I encourage bats to frequent our property to keep the bugs at bay. We live near a river and have a lot of cedar trees nearby. I have included some information on bats that may put others minds to rest about the exaggerated numbers given to the rabies present in bats. In reality, rabies is present in less than 1/2% of bats.

    I built a bat house years ago using a pattern that was supplied by Bats Conservation International. They also have some very good information. My neighbours also made one.

    It is so great to hear that we are not the only ones who enjoy the wildlife around us. We have chipmunks, squirrels, racoons, skunks and one cold winter night we had a possum (or an opossum) at our back door. There is a community garden next to us with bee hotels. There are bee hotels in our main street park. One of our neighbours has a pond. It is great for the kids to learn about nature. None of them seem to have any fear of snakes, frogs, toads salamanders or bugs. They are always bringing something to the door to share with us.
    We live in a small town in Ontario, Canada with a population under 3,000, so everyone seems to know each other here. It's great. We also feed the wild birds. It is surprising how many different types show up. Last year the Robins didn't head south until the end of October. I'm not sure if they have left yet this year. We have had some very warm weather.
    I wish you the best of luck in having your bat house filled soon. We are not sure if any are living in either of ours, but know we have had lots filling the warm summer skies. I wrote a poem many years ago about bats that I would like to share with you at a later date.
    谢谢你的热情回复;
    真挚地

    多年前,我们有一套Collier的百科全书。那是在七十年代中期。在“o”和“p”下可以找到鼠标。一个是来自美洲的动物,而另一个是欧洲人。今天我找不到提供两者之间差异的信息。我不确定百科全书集发生的事情。
    我很高兴你喜欢这首诗。这是一个真实的故事。我的父亲认为,恐惧来自无知,并试图教导我们所有的东西,他都可以大吃一惊,尤其是野生动物。多年前,我们有一些朋友在篝火上,其中一个女孩害怕她认为在天空中的蝙蝠。我撒谎并告诉她,我们没有蝙蝠,只有夜燕子。她放松,度过了美好的时光。直到多年后,我告诉她真相并被原谅。

    这是惊人的教育可以提高恐惧。例如,接受恐惧和意识之间的区别,这也很好,例如,没有必要害怕熊,但你真的应该意识到。

    夜燕子
    由Vicki Henderson.
    当我只是一个小女孩,我说爸爸“那是什么?”
    他说,“亲爱的,不要惊慌,这只是一个棕色的蝙蝠。”
    铸造阴影奇怪和新的,它通过房子翩翩起舞
    有年轻和未经训练的眼睛,我看到了一只小小的飞鼠
    童年敬畏我看着它做了一个潜水,然后它猛扑了
    Like a mid-way roller coaster, oh, how it loop-de-looped!
    继续优雅的技能,它举起了我年轻的凝视
    它通过了一定是花哨的迷宫的东西
    Then suddenly it landed on the curtain, way up high
    My Dad said, "It must go outside to eat, or it will die."
    他轻轻地把它捧着它,使其下降到低位
    当他的双手移动时,我蹲在父亲面前哦,这么慢
    His fingers slowly opened and into his hands I peeked
    我凝视着这个生物,因为它颤抖着,点击并吱吱作响
    “这更害怕我们,”爸爸说:“比我们害怕它”。“
    It fluttered from his hands just then and on a chair, it lit
    它坐在椅子上,融合在视线之外
    我看起来真的很近,我可以看到它震惊了
    Until it calmed, we let it be. We didn't want it stressed
    “我们会让它走到外面,”爸爸说,“楼上跑去衣服。”
    When I returned, I was surprised for it was in Dad's palm
    I never would have guessed that it could be so still and calm
    它看着微小的眼睛如此温和,如此甜美
    从手指上有织带,直到它的小脚
    我说,“我想抓住它哦,这么多。”
    爸爸说,“你不能握住它。如果你温柔,你可以触摸。”
    我觉得它回来了。我觉得它是翅膀,它是手指和脚趾
    它的头像是我的宝贝兄弟的鼻子一样微小。
    Its fur was soft as soft can be, its eyes were clear and bright
    As soft as kid-gloves were the wings that gave its body flight
    现在时间来让这个生物出门
    我恳求他,我恳求,我甚至哭了
    但他解释说,我们需要蝙蝠吃咬伤的虫子
    房子里没有足够的虫子。晚上外面有很多
    我们走到外面,他把爸爸的手放在一个大的猛扑弧中
    在我们知道之前,他在黑暗中消失了
    I sometimes I see his shadow as he hunts for food outside
    He swoops around the back light where the bugs don't know to hide
    Most people tend to get upset when bats are in the air
    They just don't seem to understand; they're precious, few and rare
    当人们在晚上拜访时,蝙蝠来自他们的空洞
    我们用一个白色的谎言让我们的客人平静下来,我们称之为蝙蝠
    夜燕子
    They swoop and dive while catching bugs and no one seems to care
    Who's ever heard of swallows getting tangled in your hair?

    我不确定这是最好的设计。我看不到清洁或通风的规定。拥有没有访问权限的平面是一个问题,因为只有一个狭窄的入口/出口。瓜诺将堆积起来,没有办法或清洁。查看蝙蝠保护国际的一些设计,它们具有狭窄的空腔,露天底部,没有限制。

    Garry,我并不声称是蝙蝠的专家,因此我使用了RSPB网站的确切计划,我在当地蝙蝠俱乐部发现了一些非常相似的计划。
    他们实际上是陈述,所有关节应该被封印为“蝙蝠不喜欢草稿”。
    Hopefully our local bats won't mind and find it as a safe place.

    Three bat boxes now up on the wall. Here's hoping for some new residents soon

    I have since made another two boxes (still to be sanded), this time using power tools.

    我不会鼓励蝙蝠频繁地频繁。他们在飞行中消灭,而不是他们可以携带狂犬病的鸟类。

    值得庆幸的是,盒子将位于房子的前面,因此不会在任何过多的脚交通的区域上飞行。

    Hmmm, I wouldn't be sure about their feet getting caught up, I guess it would matter on the size of the holes in the screen.
