CNC Practice - Small Clear Acrylic Speaker Box from the scrap bin


Recommended Posts

I have about $500 worth of Router bits on the way, from Mobile Solutions of course... but i wanted to see if what i have, which is a spiral upcut bit, will cut Acrylic as great as it does MDF. Well, it did a damn good job!

I think a few more practice projects like this and i will be in business. Especially once i get better bits.

oh, my terminal cup didn't fit LOL - MDF is a lot more forgiving and i could have probably shoved this into the hole if it was wood. I will make the next one better. Oh it is fully water tight!! I filled it up already and no leaks!

Out of curiosity how do you glue and work with acrylic? Does it melt and gum up bits?

I have been MIA from the web for a few days because i have been at the shop till way past dark proto-typing, learning practicing...getting to know this thing (the CNC). I have lots of stuff that worked good, and i shanked a few things too :D I am gettin better. Here is a few other things i am working on. This single din trim piece will be cut in ABS or plastic depending on which one i can make look the best.

you don't glue them. You bond them with solvent. It molecularly *sp becomes one piece rather than two pieces joined by a substance. It literally melts them together.

Quality is all in how you take pictures ;) I have plenty of projects that look WAY better on camera then in person :D
