I salute you.
Fwiw I used the tool and attachments that you are using on my first couple of builds.... and cut some lines like I was a drunk monkey
The Dremel will do the job, but it is many times harder than a table saw or router. That being said, and realising that you are taking the hard road (which I admire) keep on it, but recall: Patience.
Another way to use the current tool that you have is to use a level and c-clamps:
You will need to detach the edge guide and just use the cup. Since the cup is round it will not matter if it rotates during the cut, one just needs to keep the cup in direct contact with the straight edge as it is moving through the panel. It is also noteworthy that a 2nd set of c-clamps should be used to clamp the entire ensemble (panel, straight-edge) to a solid surface. This will leave both hands free to manipulate the work.
yeah great advice i actually thought of that after making the second cuts
right now i dont have enough acrylic to cut for a 3rd time, so im going to try to move on with what i got.
but this is my next step:
on a flat piece im going to glue, these 1" acrylic squares i got of delvies, right where they should be sitting to support the corners, then since there will be 4 on this single piece one for each side. i also got this adhesive, it basically goes down like wood glue, but dries clear as day, and it does bond to plastic. i have tested it on some scrap cause well i got plenty of that hahaha. and it looks "ok" after it dries. but with my stupid shaking its hard for me to use the weld on 3, and hold it while it dries with out me moving it ever so slightly, also my edges are not perfectly straight that is another reason why weld on 3 is not working for me.
or i might just re sand everything, on my work bench so it is really flat, and sits well.
idk what to do, but im thinking about it
thanks syrillian your always helping
