Now all the nails are in and it's time to rout...
I'm using our custom router base, which will give a spacing of 3", 3.5" or 4". I nailed the Lexan strip 3" away from
Because the lane spacing here is only 1", I turn the router base to the 4" side and can rout the second slot using
the same fence.
Using a cheap steel router bit, I got about 5" before the bit broke. Then I switched to a two flute carbide bit
(same as I use for MDF, don't ask why I tried the cheap bit). The Lexan shavings stick to the router bit and
scuff the under side of the sheet, but the slot is smooth, just looks a little messy.
This helps keep the nails straight as you pull them out...
