I have successfully cut quite a bit of wood now I want to try some acrylic. I thought it would be fun to make some stencils with it. The stuff I got is 3mm thick from the hardware store. I tried a cut but it was melting and gummed up to the extent that it failed.
I am reading people say the problem is I should get cast acrylic and the hardware store stuff is extruded. I also read suggestions about moving faster with a shallower cut and using am upcut bit.
Anyone on here cut any and can share some tips? I got a 12"x24" piece so I am hoping I can figure it out and get something usable before I go through the whole thing
