Well.. this project is not much like the 1099s.. like at all. Erich has his sheet together! Perfectly CNCed rabbet joints, tinned crossover components, detailed instructions, etc. I spent more time unboxing the obsessively compulsive packaging than I did putting them together.
I must say. This is a new experience. Fighting 100lb sheets of 3/4 MDF is a real pita.
If that doesn't get to you, then the mounds of dust certainly will. I have a huge exhaust fan in my garage and still find myself cutting everything outside with a mask and gloves on.
On a positive note I learned about this sweet little thing called a spiral upcut router bit. I can't wait for it to come in. I also learned that if your router can handle a 1/2 shank then you should not go cheap and get the 1/4 set unless you enjoy moving like a turtle, making multiple passes or using an air compressor to keep the bit cool.
All 4 PA460 18" baffle holes cut
All 4" precision ports ready for cut
Filled and sanded 95% of the viewable sides
I am definitely getting worn out, this is not a small project. I spend a lot of time staring into blank space visualizing different methods of completion scared I will forget to do something in the correct order. I almost wish I would not have integrated the top marble tiles because they require too much accuracy all around.
But they are coming along slowly but surely.
Has anyone tried using the Maslow DIY CNC rig? Is it accurate enough for speaker enclosures?
