Pass through slot help with

I am looking for any simple instructions for using the pass through slot. I am cutting mirrored plexiglass, approx. 12 x 24 inches and I need it to align perfectly. I have read through past instructions, but they seem complicated to me and I do not use illustrator. Any suggestions for a beginner?

I would use the right side of the crumb tray to sett the angle and if you have a used tape measure to glue to the rim on that right side and you will have a pretty accurate measuring device. Set a pin at the 11.5-inch mark and running the board up against it, you can then cut a hole ten inches below that and move the hole up to the pin and you have a pretty accurate measure base

thanks, any chance you have a photo of this set up?

I am a visual learner…

I am also a visual learner but most of the pictures are in my head :crazy_face:
This will make such measurement as you need, and you can apply it as you need.

Oops :blush: forgot the link…

@margaretrgriffith…if you’re not using Illustrator we have a tutorial for using the passthrough with Inkscape as well. (Pics and everything.) :wink:

Be sure to note the suggestions from the Private Message as well for working with the acrylic. Other than that, the tutorial thread explains the concepts.

THANK YOU! I will work on this tutorial. I do have illustrator, I am just not proficient on it. Which do you recommend?

Thank you! I am going to try this when I get back to my studio!!!

Well, I prefer Illustrator because I’ve been using it for years. @johnse has a good tut written up for that one.
