Interesting. I always clamp the edge I want to file straight up, and draw the file back and forth across the edge. After a point I get out my orbital sander and 220 grit and finish it off.
You must have a lot of patience..... But as long as it works. I can see how your method could give a really straight edge.

On the adjustable jigsaw....I agree they seem to work better. I don't remember the brand name of mine but I bought it at Lowes last year. It has separate setting for cutting metal and plastic. I've probably went through 15 fine tooth metal blades in the last year....cutting aluminum dulls them pretty fast and then they aren't as quick on the acrylic. But jigsaw is probably the handiest tool I own. I still like a table saw better for straight acrylic cuts but I realize everyone doesn't have one.

I agree that my method is not the fastest way but i get a good result. I notice if i do it the quick way the result is not so good.
I have seen a tablefile machine on the internet 172 euro with a few handy tools at it. i think it take a lot of work out of my hands.

And i use a Makita industrial jigsaw.

Yesterday i did it the first time this way and the edges a razor sharp and striaght. Because i have to wait on several parts i got plenty of time to work on the case.

Nothing wrong with slow when it comes to acrylic, probably better.

Handy looking little machine. Not sure how it would work with acrylic, though, it might over heat it? Unless the speed is adjustable.....

When I was sanding some acrylic to edge-glue (capillary method) last year, I found laying out a full sheet of sandpaper on a flat surface and passing the acrylic back and forth worked pretty good for me. I would use a block of smooth wood as a guide to hold the edge at a 90* angle to the sandpaper.

if you want a good laugh hold some acrylic up to a belt sander and watch it melt away! biggrin.gif I did that last year out of curiousity and it didn't take long to get the picture.....slow is usually better with acrylic.

Update 98 "more work on the acrylic for the duall pomptop"

Finished "No" but it was fun working on it again.
Today i measured out the drill holes in the bottom piece.
I put clamps on the acrylic to avoid thath the drill mal move.
I almost moved the acrylic during the drilling. pfffff
I dril the holes for the dampers and the holes to connect the pomptop to the acrylic.
I put a 4mm tread in the bottom plate. And i screw in the dampers "yes it looks good" it also feels good when i put it on the bottom of the case it sticks on the bottom (i still going to dril one more hole in the bottom piece to secure the unit to the bottom of the case.
But first more filing to do on the edges. I wil file a slope edge on the black top acrylic.
And i have to dril more holes for the leds.


I used the original acrylic piece to mount the unit to the acrylic.



Connecting the pomptop. Yes it fits.



Ahum get a better look when i take of the protection film "no first more work on it".



More work on the edges.







I wonder howe it looks when i finish it.

already late have to stop.

More tomorrow. smile.gif

Looks great as usual Henry! thumb.gif Do you shape the edges by hand, or use a router?

With a file "by hand". takes many hours. only if you put it in a workbench you can do it faster. Time is not important the result is. biggrin.gif

I like also and you do a really good job to do everything by hand but actually that is the best way of doing things we are too lazy for the most part to do things like this by hand today!!! Good to see someone that has the skills and patienance to do the right way...
