    I am a constant youtube watcher, but have never seen this. You have been the most enjoyable to watch. You explained in such great detail and clarity, I feel if I want to go through the labor, it would be easy to watch from points 1 to 15 on stringing and all the previous aspects from start to finish. Your smile during the install makes me feel comfortable to do it…thank you

    I love the princess pencil that the boys are using. Great DIY project. I plan on doing this.

  • Jose Falcao 3 months ago

    Very good. Thanks a lot for this. Question: is't possible to use the same system and run it with a electrical motor with this type of rope?

    the thing I like most about this channel is if you notice when cutting the EMT they tell you that they sell something but also tell you that the stuff from the home improvement store is half as much. it's that kind of honesty that makes me keep going back to SailRite

    For someone like myself that doesn't know the first thing about sewing, do you have recommendations for a community resource to perhaps outsource the sewing part of the project? I live in Phoenix and could really use some shade.

    This is just what I want! I would never be able to do this myself though. Also, just wanted to let you know that the link to the calculator isn't currently working, it says "Server Error 404 – File or directory not found" at

    WOW. I have been looking for a solution for a pergola I build in my back yard. Now let's check the price to make sure is not outrageous

  • mtomson msktomson 3 months ago

    Good editing and not too much fool around stuff. Thanks for the lesson in patience. And next time don't cut on your beautiful 30 yr old table because your wife will see the video and you will be busted.

    1:06:25 Your error will accumulate the way you're doing it. I'll bet your first and last set of holes are appreciably off. Use a square, instead, to transfer your marks to all the EMT.

    I still think it's funny that you can't say "sailrite." You say "sayer rite." 😀

    I am so thrilled to have found your video. We've been contemplating on getting a retractable shade cover for our pergola for a while now but the prices I got from some of the online vendors seemed outrageous and the DIY options a little intimidating, especially because I couldn't find good info on the materials I would need. Your online calculator and your detailed instructions make it look straightforward and achievable.
    I just placed my order and am looking forward to starting this project. Thank you for all these resources!
