routing acrylic - good news / bad news

Recommended Posts

Since I am in an apartment I have an indoor work bench

I took my first attempt at using a router with acrylic today. (good news)

It worked great (good news)

No matter how many power tools you have used inside I don't recommend using a router with acrylic indoors. I have acrylic specs in almost ever corner of my 10X10 office :doh: (bad news)

But the teeth are in my baffles are turning out well. But I know for next time. Thank good news I own a shop vac since I do other tool work in my home office. lol

I wonder if there is a safe way to rig the shop vac to the router (Flowbee style). It probably still wouldn't catch everything, but it might make clean up a bit easier. Congrats on routing your own baffles!

And please forgive a few of the awful typos/grammar errors. I posted as I was multitasking my damage control/clean up efforts. :doh:
