Quote:Quote:for $150 used amart addaurura precision sells plastic blocksand moonlite I've tried numerous times with wood (oak and mahogany), and they inevitably split. Wasted lots of wood and lots of time. If I were to try again, I would use plywood laminated to the needed thickness.Better yet, go commercial, aluminum or delrin! Wood just isn't the right material in terms of longevity or attachment flexibility.
