    How long will alumalite last without edge capping? Is everyone using the notcher or cutting manual? thanks

    seeing as it's plastic, i don't think it'd be a big issue....i rarely cap my alumalite...only if it's gonna be somewhere that hands will be able to touch it...

    Oh really, that is good to know. I have had it in my head that it will split from the plastic. Now I know, I do not have to edge cap everything. Thank you!!!

    No, but it looks nicer with a finished edge.

    I've found that the edge cap starts looking crappy a LOT sooner than the alumalite.
