ACRYLIC BARREL BLANKS TECH DATA - Things You Should Know!!

EXOTIC SWIRL BARREL BLANK INFO:

We offer about 50 different acrylic exotic swirl barrel blank colors. And we do all of the prep work so you don't have to. These brilliant barrel blanks start out as a square blank and we turn them into our exclusive "Ready to Shape" barrel blanks that are pre-drilled with a 5/8" bore.

The barrels we feature in our listings and used in our display photos are sanded and polished to reveal the true colors, beautify, and depth of these amazing acrylic colors. The barrels we ship are not polished. 

You will love our “Ready to Shape” barrel blanks because we do all of the prep work so you don't have to. We turn the square blanks down to a semi-round barrel so the barrel spins true. This helps us produce a more accurate center bore.

The barrel blanks are not sanded and are not perfect. They may appear “chipped” but you'll end up cutting much of the acrylic mass off and you'll get down into “fresh” acrylic. So don't be alarmed if your barrels show up with “pot marks” that look similar to a pot hole in a road. This is a normal trait from using a gouging lathe tool to quickly remove acrylic as the square turns into a round barrel.

We use a 4-step drill process in our effort to make sure you get a barrel with a smooth bore. The final 5/8" bore is done with a reamer for the smoothest bore possible when boring with a wood lathe.

Barrel Size: 2.7” x 1.4” OD with 5/8” Bore

    Scott I was wondering if you could cut the a timber tone board and drill the 1/4 hole on some of your alumilite light insert blanks?
