Default What Classification of Phenolic Does CaMaster Use?

I have never worked with solid phenolic before.

If I wanted to replace my spoilboard with a phenolic top that I can bolt fixtures to, what type is recommended my local plastics has XX, CE, LE, and G-10?

Would 1" be appropriate 4 x 4 table?
I am assuming the phenolic is very stable?
Any issues with surfacing it and drilling alignment pin and bolt holes?

Default Fwiw

Ed, I suggest that you contact Gary Campbell who has answered questions on phenolic on this forum before. You can telephone him as well. He is very easy to talk with and he likes to share. Cheers.

Sorry guys, don't know the answer to tins one. I know that CAMaster has used more than one grade in the past and settled on one that was easier to machine.
