45 12x12" sheets of 1/8 BB ply for $55

Postby Gene Uselman » Sat Aug 06, 2016 10:05 am

I like this stuff- Grade bb/bb Made in U.S.A from Woodpeckers -3mm x 11-7/8" x 11-7/8"
It is great for a lot of things- pretty flat if you keep some weight on top when storing. I make all kinds of things from it:

I will try those next- the 12x12s I bought early on and did not know if they would be as handy as they are. Gene

Mercy, Mercy :!: :!: I can't believe a guy would use a laser to make straight cuts, vs using a table saw :!: :!:
SO much faster. What a waste of electrons. :cry:

Great find, how much power does it take to cut though that ply?

Do you have the stock lens and tube? I use full power (18ma/50%) at 17 mm/s with a 1.5" HQ lens.

Reduce speed as required for the stock lens (probably around 10 mm/s or so).
