Post some images of your build, that material looks interesting, and would like to see how it cuts and finishes.....

Thanks

Just ordered a Fostex FE126EN driver. I hope to start on my cabinets within the week. What thickness of material would you recommend for this driver?

Looks like there is some errors in the cut sheet. For example the "top" parts are 172mm in the cut sheet and 171mm in the plan where you see the speaker from the side. The baffle is 898 mm tall in cut sheet and 894mm in the drawing.

If you're referring to Planet10 cut plans, I 've noticed more than a few minor such discrepancies myself on the literally hundreds of Dave's drawings I've seen and built from over the years.

I always redraw in my own CAD program, as I often construct with different configurations of parts overlay/ insets, add dadoes / rabbets - which will change dimensions of parts drawn with butt joints- and forward some pieces to CNC production. I also always cut slightly larger than drawn and trim to dry fit on the first time build of a design from any source that is not a simple rectangular box.

Oh i Think im the one who made a mistake this time, the plan is correct, I didn't notice that the angles will have impact on the hight for example.

I managed to take a few crappy pictures with my phone today, next time i will bring my nikon. Still better than nothing.

I think Dave is confirming there could still be some errors in dimension snaps - particularly on conversion of drawings for material thicknesses.
