How would you like to route some teeth for a baffle of your sump? Here is one of the methods I've used.

You could create a "jig" that is re-useable, such as the thumbnail to the right.  It provides me with a series of grooves for the router bit's shaft to trace, but over time it melts the material of the jig and has to be replaced.  This is a good choice for a few uses, at most.


Acrylic work: Tools I use...

Due to the abundance of emails, it was time to put some pictures on the site. Here are a number of items I use to build the sumps and other acrylic wares I fabricate.

Acrylic work: Routing Top Flange

There are a few ways to accomplish the top flange (the rim or one-piece euro-brace) of a sump.

This was tedious, and cutting wood for each sump would end up costing too much.
