Caution panel build - step by step


Recommended Posts

I have my indicators dimensioned at .97x.35, but since I am using a laser, the kerf reduces that size by around .05.

 

Sames goes for the dimensions I listed in your other thread. The laser cuts right along the line, whereas a CNC will cut on the inside or outside of the line. Also, you'll need to know what kind of tolerances the CNC has (runout, repeatbility, etc.) and adjust your dimensions according. Unless you are trying to achieve 100% accuracy to the real panel, just dimension it to meet your needs. :)

Hey Patriot,

 

I rarely visit the site these days as all my pit-building is on hold until the Hornet is released. I can dig this panel out and get the measurements for you though. Would you prefer them from the real panel or from the panel I made?

 

Give me a couple days to find where I packed this up and I'll get back to you.

I need dimensions of your panel - it looks great! Thank you!

 

PS: What is the difference between the words "dimension" and "size"? :)

Thanks very much for the info!

 

Bad news for me. Looks like I made my indicators too high so my panel is one unit too high! Looks like its back to the drawing board......

Here you go:

 

A - 5 5/8"

B - 4"

C - 5"

D - 11/32"

E - 31/32"

F - 1/16"

 

pitbldr, thank you very much!

And are you sure that width is bigger than height? In the photo it seems that the height is larger. Or it seems to me? ))
