    Great job Leslie, have you tried getting the chamfered edge?

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    I wonder if you could take a sheet of clear plastic, add some heat, care and patience, and bend up a few inches all the way round the perimeter of the sheet and end up with a turntable dust cover.

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    To bend the Perplex is no problem, but you will never get the edges and corners right, at the corners you will have to glue, and you will allways be able to see the union, upper edges will be round and not square as org.

    Yes "nearly", by bending you can never get the 90 degree corner, it will allways be 2 x 45 degrees, after grinding, or as in the first pic, a 1/4 circle

    Great craftsmanship Leslie. You are  a true artist at this stuff. I am still in awe of how you came up with using the copier machine to bend the persplex pieces.
