Tips for working with Richlite
Carbide-tipped saw blades are recommended for both circular and table saw cutting applications. The proper feed rate, combined with a sharp blade, will result in coarse sawdust. All sawing should be performed dry.
| Milling, Routing & Machining|
Carbide cutters are recommended. The proper feed rate, combined with a sharp cutter will result in coarse sawdust. All machining should be performed dry.
| Drilling & Tapping|
The use of high speed steel drills and taps are recommended for short production runs and shallow holes. All drilling and tapping should be performed dry. For longer production runs and deeper holes, use carbide-tipped drills and taps. To ensure optimum thread strength, use a slightly smaller pilot drill than specified for the size tap required. Prevent chipping around the holes by using a piece of scrap to back up the piece to be machined. Lift the drill frequently to allow chips to be removed and to prevent the build-up of excess heat. Holes drilled parallel to the lamination should be clamped or secured in a vise.
| Sanding & Buffing|
Use a belt sander, disc sander, or sand by hand. Sand using the same procedures and techniques as used with wood. Dry sanding is recommended.
| Bonding Richlite|
Lightly sand the mating surfaces to be glued. Use epoxy adhesives such as RenLam 1700-1 or Freeman 690.
