Default Bevel Bits

Eagle America sells 22.5 deg lock miter bits and they sell straight angles in 60/30, 45/45, 67.5 / 67.5 degree bits.. Not a variable set it where you wish, but a few more options than just the corner bit.

I have used the miter bits at 22.5 deg. and they are workable. I made come columns and some flower "buckets" for hanging baskets. everything seemed to work fine. At least everything fit good.

I would need to look at Bills plans but none of them would do. What is needed for speakers is a manual setup to what ever the plans say and there could be 4 or 5 different bevels for each plan.

Default Not my bailiwick!

I suppose it comes through -- my ignorance of the sound cabinet bevel needs. That is why the original question. I like using the router, when possible. I have a band saw, dual bevel miter saw and table saw. Each has their issues, and deflection is one of those problems that is always cropping up. I have yet to have a deflection problem on my router table. I have had positioning and stabilization issues but deflection -- no. On the other side -- it matters little if you have zero deflection or tool spring, and not be able to produce the angle required.

Still learning --
Phil

Not all speaker builders require the ability to do bevel cuts at various angles. That is a requirement for people building horn loaded speaker boxes. A lot of the people that are speaker builders on the EZ forum have come over from the BFM forum. Bill's plans are all horn loaded, thus the constant requests for better bevel cutting solution.

This is not my build, its just a photo of a partially completed cabinet from the BFM forum to illustrate why the ability to easily set and cut various bevels is important to us.

I hobbled thru my last few projects using various tricks for lining up my bevels and cutting with the EZ-One.

I might build my own bevel base borrowing ideas that Dino posted earlier. Might be a fun winter time project.

got very sloppy with the PL premium, but this is my first time working with it. more concerned with making sure i have no leaks. won't see it from the outside anyway . i'm going to build a square speaker grill "cap" to cover the end. i'll design it like the ohm walsh covers:

Looking good! T60, right?

I use way a lot of PL also, but I have never had a cab leak other than at the access cover so I don't think you can apply too much PL.

I like the look of the horn mouth cover. Is the cab for home use?
