For people who want to do it themselves, the best method is usually a table router. I actually have a how-to blog and videos on this. We are trying to educate and clear up common misconceptions(like the one about cutting acrylic
with the blade on backwards, wholly #*@~!). I'm not going to put the links here because it would be considered commercial
links. The forum mod was gracious not to ban me for doing that before(sorry again).
Old thread, I know. Hope you're still around. I've finally decided to replace my old, crazed acrylic ports
with hopefully high quality new acrylic. Do you have any sealant
recommendations? Somebody already mentioned SikaFlex 295 I think, but that may have been for Lexan
. I've also been recommended to BoatLife's LifeSeal (vs. LifeCaulk). Any recommendations for sealant
would be appreciated. I'd also be obliged if you might PM me with how I may purchase
the acrylic itself from your co. or another reputable source, assuming that's consistent with forum rules, of course. Thanks.
