Well I am defeated! :oops: , I have made a total of 5 blocks and only one might be useable ive used up all my 15mm acrylic sheet and all the acrylic tube too. This stuff is hard to work with, I take my hat off to you guys on here that have used the suff succesfully 8) I went to get another piece of acrylic tube today (32mm ID X 38mm OD). They only had full lengths at 900mm long and wanted $50.00 Aust( BEFORE TAX!!!) so I said forget it!, last time it was an offcut they had and that cost $20.00 Aust = Is acrylic tube/sheet expensive for you guys too!!!??.

I think I'll go onto another project, Australia sucks in regards to sourcing up these parts : If I had a drill press etc I would have probably completed an inline but I was using a chordless drill and a vice thats not bolted down so that didn't help.

well, because it's more simpler just make the block out of wood and go from there.

use Lexan its a hell of a lot easier to work with than acrylic. i have successfully made about three or four blocks out of something i called layered Lexan (5 thin 2mm sheets of Lexan that are sandwiched together with CA glue in a vice to total about 12mm wide). i always use the fastest drilling speed becuase it actually starts to melt the Lexan and makes it a lot easier to drill through. but it produces CA glue vapor so you don't want to keep the drill on long (like 5 second periods with 10 second cool down time)

and a drill press is a really good investment, make sure you get a vice for it too

All of my vortex blocks were made just from a piece of acrylic, a hacksaw, a drill, and some files. I would use polycarbonate sheet (Lexan) but it costs almost 4 times as much as the acrylic and is too hard to cut to be accurate with, when using a hacksaw.
