    Re: Stiffest Non-conductive material?

    Hi Jason: you could try corian, almost as hard as glass easy to machine and cut and pretty cheap any cabinet shop will sell you a scrap pc for a few dollars

    In the 1940s-1970s Micarta fabric reinforced phenolic was the choice for machinable rigid non-conductive material.
    For your purpose I would go with Lexan polycarbonate, it's cheap, stable, machinable, reasonably rigid, and readily available.

    Measure once... cut twice.
