Re: Plastic components

If the "plastic" was one of the later high grade types and machined and cut and drilled as well or better than wood and was black and did not swell or shrink.. why not.

Keep in mind.. those Mother of Pearl Buttons are plastic.. many of the leather reed valves are backed up with plastic.

What's the difference in milling plastic or milling wood, it's still craftsmanship and I don't see where the material converts that to assembly .


Delrin is far superior to wood in the right application.

Craftsmanship is mitered joints, Jr High wood working is butted joints.

Traditionally, boxes were mitered, only the lazy and less skilled, and cost cutters use butt joints.

I'd rather have a mitered chassis box with delrin rockers than a butt joint all wood box.

Tradition is also experimentation and improvement and evolution.
