  • Nice...might be wanting a specialist plywood blade if you are going to continue down that road.

  • !

    With more teeth?

  • Thats cheating [-X

    It's a new type of cricket protector.

    Ha hah. If so then I need it!

    So the plan (such as it is) is to make formers the right shape, then cut enough times in the right places, then wrap the ply onto the formers and glue it. However something will be needed to fill the cuts i.e. fill the cuts then bend and glue. I was thinking maybe builder's bog? What do you reckon.

    LIke this?

    I'm not sure how it's different from the general purpose festool blade. Cheaper :) Thin kerf will mean more cuts though :(

    Confused (as usual!) :-S

  • Here's the general idea -

    Torpedo v2

    The grey outline is the cross section, black outline is the top/bottom panels. I realized that earlier my diagrams were confusing because I wasn't showing the "hole" that the drivers fire through.

    (Old thread: http://audiofrequency.com.au/discussion/157/torpedo-sub-idea)

  • Also I might just make the curve a semicircle.

  • Like this -

    Torpedo v2 compact

    Yeah! Though I like CMT blades myself.

    More teeth means less tear out as the blade leaves the job. It also means the blade is more durable when cutting plywood because ply is hard on blades. The carbide bits also tend to be shaped differently to enhance durability on these saw blades. So less sharpening required.

    Use caulk to fill the cuts. It's an air cure, water based and won't interfere with the forming. Just apply on the flat sheet then curl into position and remove the excess.

  • Any up dates on the cab work ?

  • No... I'm making boxes for 3" drivers... don't ask.

  • JohnR said: don't ask.
