Need Advice on Water Channel Panels

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN,

I'm thinking about incorporating an acrylic custom mono-block( don't know what else to call it ) into my next build....You know.....

These things:

It looks like it's just acrylic that got hit with a CNC router with another panel glued (or screwed) over the top.

Are there any guides around on how to do this? I'm getting serious enough about it to buy a shapeoko 3....Of course I'll use it for other stuff.....BUT WATER PANEL!!!!

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Its not just glued together. You have to also machine a small groove on one side for an o-ring to seal each chamber.

I've made a few acrylic reservoirs....Water tight isn't an issue. I've seen these mono-blocks done before without gaskets. Anyway, no worries. CNC will be here soon...I'll start experimenting then I guess.
