Audio Switchbox 3.0 – Part 2






Continued work on the plexiglass front and back panels.  The difficultly in this operation is with the stereo jacks, the threaded mount is not long enough to reach through the 3/16″ plexi, so a countersink is needed.  Simple enough, just use a forstner bit for a flat bottom hole about 3/4 of the way through the plexi.  That did not go well at all:  the bit wandered (which is strange, since it’s chucked in a drill press) and the bit filled up with melted plastic continuously.  A spade bit was used next with much better results.  The mounting holes and counter sinks were next, tomorrow the panels will receive spray paint to complete that portion of the project.
