Acrylic


#1

Can acrylic be easily cut with a dremmel type saw?
Thickness is 5mm.


#2

Jigsaw with a fine blade is good


#3

Was thinking of getting one of these for my amp,then cutting a long slot in the back for cables.

Is it easy to get a straightish line with a jigsaw?

The finish won’t be great, the specialists heat the cut edge with a flame (or laser cut it) to achieve a clean edge.

If I can think of the name of the company I used, I’ll post it. They’re not expensive.

They’re good.


#6

The owner is into hifi, he uses a 301 (or used to)

I’ll see if it’s eaier to get them to make it.

No

Curious. Acrylic only ever seems required to protect HiFi from felines. Oh well.

comes as a flat pack that you assemble with small fittings. You can specify a cable cut out as well. Was very reasonable in price…
