machining Garolite?


Garolite is a tradename that covers a wide range of plastic
composites, with various reinforcements and binders. Some are easy to
machine, some are pretty nasty.

I picked Garolite XX or LE for the job. Can't recall right now. I
don't need the strength of stouter materials, I just needed something easy
for this amateur to work with and that could tolerate the environment it was
in (and better match the thermal characteristics of the G-10 it's going to
be epoxied to.)
