After looking around at what people on these forums have been doing with depron milling, I gave it a try.
Thanks go out to the other folks who have posted what they have figured out with the milling process. Thanks for the inspiration!
My take on milling that is a little different:
Poster board makes cheap, sturdy, easy to cut templates. You then need to set the guide collar depth accordingly.
The collar is a tight press fit so it can be adjusted to different depths according to the thickness template your using. I experiment with it a little before I cut.
A very light mist of spray adhesive attached the drawling to the poster board, and a very light mist for the poster board template to the foam part.
I looked for a guide collar to fit around the bit that was just marginally bigger then the bit itself. Thus keeping the difference between the drawing and the final cut to a minimum. I went through that drawer in the kitchen where you keep all the junk and found different pens that could be taken apart, and used for guide collars. A metal pen cap worked for me.
Thanks again to those who have posted on this topic before me!
