Sorry for being such a "stick in the mud", but the molecular bond will not break cleanly.... or at least the odds are so low that I can not work up the courage to give it a go. I was able to do it with the HDD rack, but that cost me some height. Such a loss was manageable with the HDD rack, but will not be with the pump stands as the height plays a part in the loop-drainage design.
They could be cut, but there are some problems:
- A dremel-cut off wheel is to "raw" of a tool to make a clean cut in acrylic (at least in my meat-paws).
- The perpendicular base negates the use of a table saw, although I could use a "riser", but then I would still need to clean it up. That lost height might be too much for the aforementioned drainage aspect.
- A flush-cut with the router bit or the spiral bit with the Dremel will still leave me with the "too short" issue.
.... I tried, really. but I do not relish the thought of attempting to snap the sides off of the bases and risk the wall itself snapping.... it has happened all too often with me.
But please, if you have some idea or work-around that I have neglected to consider.... speak your mind, it is always welcome.
