    Hi all

    My dream machine would be to cut "finished" panels of acrylic from a 4' x 8' sheet to build fish tanks. Currently, I have to cut the sheet down on my table saw, then rout all the pieces on the router table to get a smooth edge, which is a lot of steps, and hassle.

    What would you need in the way of rails for strength and minimal deflection using the big 75182 3 1/4hp Porter Cable router. Probably need rails 10' x 5' for a full sheet at 4' x 8'.

    Would a rack and pinion be better than belt drive? Would want accracy and very clean finish over speed, over all.


    TIA
