The same trick also works with Lexan/Plexiglas, etc. Or you can clamp a piece of wood on top.

Damn good tip.
A tip for this tip - don't use electrical tape, the heat generated by the cutting process usually melts the tape's glue, sometimes even the tape, then you get stuck cleaning all that gooey glue gunk off your stock which takes just as long as deburring the edge. Automotive masking tape(the lime green 3M stuff) works ok for me.

hehe, sure! if you lived close, i would gladly mill your metal for you. but shipping would be pricey. i need practice at any rate.

im going to be a total loser and do a ton of unecessary parts for my pre-amp, just because i can, and because it will be nice to get the practice.

i just got doing the solidworks files and analysis, and it looks like my aleph2s will be weighing in at around 100 pounds per chassis, maybe a bit more. not too shabby. gonna need that money for all that metal and fasteners!
