Ok. I give… Tried to figure this out, but didn’t work. Maybe you GF experts can make suggestions?
I’m trying to make a jig with GF that will help me position both pieces of leather (outer marbled leather, and inner leather) for watch bands AFTER I cut them on the GF (I tried for days to cut the composite on the GF, but it just burns up (sandwiched strap is apx. 6mm thick).
Here’s what I attempted: I engraved the hole pattern at half the thickness of the maple board to create the indention where the cut-outs of the hole models would go (see attachments). I needed thicker cutouts of the models so they would stand up when glued more than 6mm, so I cut them out with plywood. Then, I glued them in the engraved holes, but they easily broke. Idk…maybe they weakened with the settings I had to use to cut them out.
I need the two layers of leather to perfectly line up when I glue them together, and have different sizes, but the holes are all the same - so that’s why I was trying to do this. I’ve included some pics of two of the watches, but they don’t line up perfectly…
Anybody have suggestions?!IMG_1788|666x500
