Gabe says that milling acrylic causes weakening and it's just a matter of time until those weak spots will fail. He doesn't want to have failures with his product line.

Machined Delrin doesn't have that problem so that's why they use Acetal for the Storm. Now that's a block I'd like to get my hands on
