3/4" T-Molding

Postby Chnillapoil » Sun Nov 10, 2019 3:46 pm

Hi everybody,
I've been through a Robotron arcade cab project lately and needed to install some textured t-molding on it.
I learned the hard way that 3/4 inch plywood nor MDF are 3/4 inch anymore..... so textured T-molding doesn't fit on these.The real measure is now .72 of an inch.
My 3D printer was very useful to build a tool to trim it to the right measure. Here' s what it looks like:

That textured T-Molding is beautiful! I don't know if I've ever seen that before.

Robotron came out with it from the factory. It comes only in 3/4 on tmolding.com
It would have been easier to use regular ones as they are at the good size..... but the look is a lot better.
