Thanks for all the tips gentleman. Unfortunately, I do not have a TAP
plastics locally, but I'm sure I can find a substitute. If I want to make
the vertical piece plastic versus wood, what kind of glue will hold the
pieces together, and how thick do the pieces need to be?
I use a scoring tool called the ScoreMate from Fletcher-Terry. It's a
small hand tool with two carbide blades for scoring acrylic. I find
that it also scores Wilsonart for breaking in a clean line.
I bought a 150 tooth 10" blade designed for plastics and laminates. Not a
carbide tipped blade. Makes great cuts in 1/4" Lexan. If slow the feed
rate to about 1/2 that of plywood, the cuts are very smooth and require
little preparation before bonding and getting clear seams. Leaves no "fuzz"
on the plastic, but, it does make up welded chucks of fuzz inside my TS.
The DC gets most of it, some have to be manually peeled off after the job is
done. I bought the blade at Home Depot a year ago.
