If I have a double front baffle and a single .75 inch side, what is the maximum roundover bit I can use on the front baffle? (safely)

How about .75 to .75 for that matter?

Thanks guys.

Roundover bits are very expensive...if it's not visible (mine is on top and 7' tall) you can carefully cut a hole with a jigsaw at ever-increasing angles to get a wider hole (I used two passes). I think it's not half bad, though it isn't nearly as fine a job as others I've seen. It turned out increasing the port radius by 1" (8" port has 10" flared opening)

Depends on how you join the wood. If you use a miter joint you can go farther. With a butt joing You're fairly limited. Just make sure you get a good bit. Bad bits can kill you. I recommend Whiteside bits.

I try to keep roundover to a minimum. Especially if you use screws or nails.

Thanks guys, I used a 1/2 in on the whole box for now. It looks fairly good, just not as "sexy" as some of the greater radii.
