oh man, i went through this whole amazing log at thought it would be finished but i was wrong!
really nice, looks so good, can't beat custom
Imma totally with you on the custom-thingy, although it does have its drawbacks in some instances.
Perhaps if you attached a piece of backing material to the acrylic (scrap plywood?) with spray adhesive that would reduce the vibration enough to allow you to make the cuts requested.
If the piece still vibrates and bends too much with the router, then perhaps you could use a drill and a jig saw or a dremel with the straight edge guide?
Any work-around would need to be used with the router table and the 3/4" bit as I have no jigsaw ().
I do have a Dremel, and I have used the spiral bit and the straight-edge guide for similar tasks.... It's just that the router bit yields such a clean cut in a single sweeping motion.... it enables my laziness.
Never the less, I appreciate your input and your willingness to offer up possible solutions.
Ah, that makes sense. What if we wee to forgo the extra slot and only move forward with the SSD bays with only the 3? That would be perfectly acceptable if it were possible. I was thinking looking from the front of one of these bays, it could look like this: |__===__| where the vertical lines are the rails and there is a piece of acrylic (could probably be 1/8") running horizontally with a way to mount the SSD. Three bays should be plenty for a pair of SSDs and a large storage drive.
As for a name, take a look at my sig rig.
My thoughts on the SSD bay-tray are essentially the same as your own, and considering all elements involved it may be the "best" way to approach this.
I will need some dimensions and some mounting point measurements.
please clarify the bold segment.... immma not quite sure what you mean.
I like that!
Gonna give the neighborhood a couple more hours before I shatter the calm morning air with my unholy din.
