I spent today instead of going to a rainy Mardi Gras, drawing of the .025 parts in Autocad. After looking at these drawings. I am only drawing irregular shaped pieces for watercutting. If it is retangular I would rather save a buck and scribe cut it. It will cut the watercutting task/bill down to a min. In time, I will post a pdf file of what I come up with along with my estimate to have it cut. Productive day off at the laptop.

WORK TABLE QUESTIONS

 Ok I am just starting out and I built a pair of table frames approx 3x7 to support 2 4x8 shts of MDF plywood. My metal shop leaks occasionally under heavy rain. I want to waterproof the MDF and was wondering would it have any negative effects upon the alum if I painted the mdf? Sounds trivial and silly but I have been fooled before on similar issues in the past. Doesn't hurt to ask. I welcome any comments and suggestions. It is also quite a puzzel getting two tabletops to be in the same plane for fabrication.I plan on using leveling bolts in the legs.
