Hey everyone, I did a search and tried to find answers before I post this, but I couldn't find anything. Just a couple of quick questions. I am not much of a pen maker and I have never tried acrylic. Can I drill this stuff with a normal sharp twist bit without it blowing up? Also, I talked to the owner of my local Woodcraft and he told me to make sure my tools are sharp and I will do this, but I forgot to ask him if I can use a parting tool on the acrylic.
I bought 2 European pen kits because they were on sale at Woodcraft. They are going to be Christmas gifts. I made one last night (will post pics later ) and realized that you need to make a tennon on one of the blanks. Can I use my parting tool on the acrylic without blowing it to pieces?
