    I haven't machined a ton of Delrin, but with what little experience I have had, I found that keeping the feed rate high helps prevent chip loading and melting.

      Thank you spongerich, I'll remember that.

      I might try using a router table with a plastic cutting bit to cut out the 1/4" thick side panels and floor plate. I hoping if I make the Delrin floor plate tight to the pushers sides when I tighten the slide clamp down it will hold the floor in place too. I'm also going to use a 1/2" Nylon cap screw on each side of the frame towards the back to keep the slide from twisting. It all sounds good, now if I can pull it off.
