Hi everyone it’s been awhile!
The CNC enclosure is well underway and has doors!
I bought custom cut extruded acrylic windows for about $200 (dual pane 1/4” thick panels)
I used Nitrile adhesive to secure the windows in place. The glue was runny and messy and got clover the edges of one panel making it look crappy. im going to order two new windows and replace the wood strips used to seat the panels with white square trim so it looks nicer.
The nitrile adhesive used to bond the panels is necessary as nitrile has the lowest permeability to helium which is what will fill the gap between them for sound dampening.
The inner layers are almost all the way up and im working on lining the underside of the table with MDF. Its going to house my shop vac and my Wen shop dust/air filter. I just got the Wen in a week ago and its been great. I ordered a Dewalt DXV10P shop vac which is advertised as being quiet and has great reviews. I also bought a dust cyclone and various hoses and fittings to make it all work.
On top of all this I’ve already wired my led light strips. I have a warm and cool set of high CRI lights with a CRI 0f 95+ so the colors are more vibrant and accurate and everything looks studio quality. no need for lights this fancy I just like ballin out.
Also I bought 72 sq ft if Noico sound deadening sheets. I use this on my car to add mass and ill have enough to add a whole layer around the entire inside of the enclosure. the 72 sq ft weighs about 50 lbs so all that mass should help a lot.
Heres a picture of the shop vac, enclosure, and noico sound deadening. This photo of the enclosure doesn’t have the windows in it ill post some newer photos later tonight or tomorrow
