I just received two 4'x4'x1/4" Acrylite sheets for free and I was wanting to
make a router plate with some of it. Thinking of using two pieces and
gluing them together for strength. Believe a 1/2" of clear acrylic would be
strong enough to hold a router. I've tried to glue this stuff before with
ca but it didn't hold.
What would you guys suggest? I would like it to be something clear so I
could see through the acrylic. I assume some kind of epoxy.
Thanks in advance
You can lead them to LINUX
but you can't make them THINK.
Just because you got it for free doesn't mean you should use it! Gluing
acrylic face to face is not going to get you a transparent router base.
Better to buy a small square of 1/2" stuff. It will be cheaper than the
epoxy and work lots better. Ask your supplier for the toughest clear stuff
you can get. Plain sheet acrylic isn't going to last very long before it
becomes opaque through wear.
