Default CNC cut baffle

Here is my first cut with my CNC router!

I bought it before Christmas, and have been
learning the software ever since. I still
have a lot more to learn, but I think I am
well on my way.

Here is the baffle populated with a Raven R-1
and Scan Speak 15W-8530K01. I am looking forward
to getting this combo up and running again.

1) I am extremely jealous.
2) It looks like the fit around the drivers could be a lot tighter.

Unless he want to put a sealant gasket like I want to do for my next project. I will use aerospace sealant used for the integral fuel tank (the wings) to create a gasket underneat the drivers and around it. We call this a form in place gasket. Very effective against fuel leak in high altitute, so I think it should work ok with just air at ground level =)

Is this sealant easier to work with than urathane? How do you get a nice flat gasket in place without gluing in the drivers permanantly? Brand name? I need a gasket for my speakers! Thanks.

I bought the machine from a guy in Los Angeles. He
currently has another for auction at E-bay.

Easy. What we use to install the access door on the aircraft it to put mold release on the access door, apply the sealant on the rebate of the access hole on the wing and you put the access door in is place. The mold release will make sure that the sealant only glue to the wings and not the access door. When the cure is complete, we remove the access door and remove the excess of sealant and voila, a perfect gasket seal.
