I want to make a shaker top for a mason jar–a super simple project, just a plastic circle with a bunch of other circles cut out of it. I’ll prototype in cardstock but once I have a design I like, I would like to make final versions out of food-grade plastic.
I’ve seen .06 in food-safe Delrin sheets at about $10 sq ft.
Nylon is about half the price but apparently doesn’t cut cleanly. HDPE is supposedly melty too.
Acrylic can be food-safe too, but seems likely to be brittle in such a thin piece, full of holes.
Can anyone recommend a different plastic that cuts well, is food safe, and maybe cheaper than Delrin?
