Ideas on smoothing this acrylic cut - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
haha

well I just mounted the part in the case, but if you look in the gumdrop thread there's a pic with it printed on 8.5 x 11 " paper that was cut down, but the acrylic is 12 x 12. I'd say it was about 8-9 inches wide and the J being a few inches tall at most, with the other letters smaller. If that isnt a good guage let me know and I'll go snap a pic with ruler. As for time, well thats hard to say, with stoppages, blade re-threading etc etc. The cutting ended up taking a couple hours I'd say, but thats also me going slow etc. If you are looking for rate of cutting I'd say you can move along at a pretty good pace, maybe 6-8 inches per minute would be my guess. But as you know thats not really a guage since this type of work is too precise to move along at the actual cutting rate. I image I will get faster and better at it the more I do it. Its a matter of finding the right blade tension for the material, and the right SPM, then you can move along at a decent pace. Too bad you dont live around here, I'd invite you an a few other blokes over for beer, bbq, and scroll saw shinanigans

thanks. I ended up touching it up briefly with a dremel sanding drum, and called it a day. I mounted the part in the case and it looks pretty good without the paper. Good, not great. Today I will not only call it a day, the build is complete as well. final pics in gumdrop thread in a little while

I would use the stones as they don't gouge like the sanding rolls. This all depends on how melty you material is though too. They work awesome on lexan from my experience.
