Bump: I a note to forum and thread readers.
The pictures in this thread will be lost in about 2 months because Comcast is removing all personal web pages and associated files. If the thread is to retain the pictures the forum would need to store the pictures locally!
Sorry for the problem. I have used this method for so many years and all will be lost

Such an awesome job, I cant even build a simple tank stand without a little cardboard under the leg to level it out lol. (But on the other hand i'm so paranoid they're usually sturdy enough to withstand an elephant stampede)
I can't imagine doing such precise work.

or they could well become pico-canister filters!!

Designed and fabricated a nano size reactor.
This size would be more suitable for small displays
Next size smaller would be a bubble counter

Looking at some of your work gets me going.
I don't always see these threads or what others do.
I tend to isolate a little to avoid being influence by creepy people like the one that attacks me here!
Anyway I have it noted and will look your work over closely
Your doing an awesome project. One that many have on drawing board but few if any ever developed or finished.

I use mostly large 2 flute carbide bits to size and edge sheets.
Whiteside, osg, Freud brand and spiral bits for pattern work.
This thread details a great deal on working with this material.
The example shows a display tank but the methods are used for most acrylic fabrications. This thread I am told is one of the best for tank fabrication on the net. Take careful notes every step can me important and practice is required just like the thread details.
The table saw shown in this thread is a very light duty saw and required extensive modification for my use. I added the router tables and fences myself for the varied things I do. To recommend a tool is hard because of preference and need. If I was to purchase again I would by a big heavy solid expensive saw. This allows for more precise work by reducing vibration and flex when sawing or routing.
Be safe, do lots of research online and have fun learning.

I see so much done by you and others , its hard to stand out.
Currently testing and developing a little more to offer a complete product line. "much like you " . I like to design and prototype more then mass production and sales. My hands remind me of this if I forget!
Looking at selling the models and methods to make so others can build and sell.

awesome and well done!!! subcribed to your thread.
I bought a Dewalt dw621 router only on CL, no bits at all. question, may be 2.
What kind of bits do you recommand to buy for acrylic works?
Will I be able to attach my router to any Craftman, Skils, Black Decker table saw?

The time is ripe for this kind of boutique manufacture (like is already established for high end reef tank products) for planted tank equipment. People will totally buy your stuff.

MD, the hands may not look all that pretty but they sure do produce one heck of a product. How long do you figure it takes to make one of these?
How about a shot of how you do the relief for the o-ring?
