    Brian, your email's not working (or it's doing a good job bouncing emails back to me), so I wanted to let you know that was able to use my friend's big ol' router to do the roundover for my front baffles. So you have your weekend at your disposal. [​IMG]

    Glad to hear you don't need me this weekend! [​IMG] It would be nice to come check out some of those subs you've built, though! Maybe in a week or two after things settle a bit more. I should be getting my storage building/wood shop in a few weeks! Then I won't have to fill the garage up with MDF dust anymore! It sure is nice having a friend in the storage building industry that'll sell you one at cost!
    Be sure to post a pic of the baffle! (Like I have to ask!)

    Awesome Pat! Pat used a 3/4" roundover bit. That's why he needed another router. His does not accept 1/2" shank bits.

    Yah, a BAB - Big A$$ Bit. [​IMG]
    I have one of the front baffles glued down on the box (it fit pretty well), and clamped up my other box panels, and will glue down the other baffle tonight (Not really sure how long I should like the glue dry, so I am using a day between glueings).
    I screwed up one of my tweeter flushes (it was my first one ever) but did better with my second tweeter.
    I should be able to get the boxes all braced up by Saturday time permitting. I've already migrated most of the photos to my webspace, so a construction page will be forthcoming within a few weeks.

    Pat,
    Many may not agree with this, but when I just glue and clamp, I only wait about 30-60 minutes before moving on the the next clamping. I've found that the glue sets pretty quickly and the joint doesn't move or expand after this amount of time. I glued up my second sub enclosure in one afternoon with only 4 clamps. I also Liquid Nailed all internal joints for added insurance. All I need to do now is laminate the baffle and attach it.
    Now I would allow a day or so after gluing before I attempted to insert the drivers and start sending any signals to the speaker to make sure that I don't create any air leaks. And as slow as the finishing process runs for me, this isn't an issue.
    Brian

    Brian, well, I'm in the home stretch, and can only work on one box at a time, so it won't kill me to give the other baffle some additional drying time, while I do the bracing on the first box. [​IMG]

    Pat,
    When I did my bracing I had already glued the sides to the bottom and then decided exactly how I wanted to brace it. Then I glued in the bracing from the bottom up. Then I attached the top, back and baffle. This gave me time to figure out how I wanted to do the bracing before I got too far along.
    I still like to build the entire cabinet before rounding over any edges. This allows for sanding out any problem edges before doing the roundover. But hey, as long as it works for you that's all that counts!
    Brian
    P.S. "(Hey, how come other people are reading this thread?)" It must be because it's got your name on it! I know it has nothing to do with mine! [​IMG]
