1. What is the best way to get a straight cut in polycarbonate? I read in the beginners guide to machining plastics that a tablesaw with the correct blade will work, but I'm afraid that it will shatter 1/8" polycarb. If I use Mcmaster part #4079A15, will I be OK?
2. What speed should I set a scroll saw at if I want to cut the plastic? I was thinking something around 800 would work, I just wanted confirmation. (I have a Ryobi model; I dont think that matters)
3. Which blades should I use for the scroll saw? (a Mcmaster part # would be greatly appreciated)
Also, any other tips for someone new to this (tapping holes, using the plastic weld, etc) are welcome.
