Terminator armboard mkii
This one has three point clamping built into collar.
I’m happier with this one.


#431

Thinking about a plywood stack version of the little speakers, corian front and back.


#432

Plywood ordered :sob:


#433

How long will each ‘leaf’ take to machine?


#434

About 3-4mins of machine time, I have ordered the sheets so I can do two layers at a time, so 10 to 15 mins in total including loading the sheets. 18 layers, so a few hours.


#435

Pretty quick overall though. Do bigger and better machines go faster?


#436

Yes and they can load a much bigger sheet, it’s the setup that takes the time as always rather than the cutting out.


#437

But if you’re doing multiple copies then setup only happens once yes?


#438

I mean loading the sheet and securing it, then starting up the cycle. I will have to do it 18 times when on a large machine you could probably just do it once.


#439

Ah, gotcha.

Still quicker than a jigsaw or router


#440

Oh yes, my machine is fairly quick, it could go faster but I run it so I can hit stop fast enough should something go wrong. Now I have a vacuum attachment it’s a pleasure to use.


#441

What size sheet can you work with?


#442

500x450 ish.
