milling abalone - 10-13-2016, 11:02 AM

Hi guys, I havent worked with abalone and was wondering how it mills and most of the stuff Ive seen is very thin. So that tells me that the pockets must be pretty shallow. Is there any synthetic substitute that looks and works well? Also does it sand and polish well.Thanks for any help. Appreciate it.

the dust from cutting or sanding can be toxic.

It mills fine, but the dust is very rough on your lungs. Use a dust collector and a mask when messing with this stuff. I have worked with it a lot. It sands and polishes fine also. I love the look of it, but it is dangerous stuff.
