I use a table saw. I guess it would be feasable to use a hacksaw. If i were you though i would just use the razor. But this time use an edge to cut against. And just be careful, you dont have to score it too deap for it to crack, just have to give it a path to crack along. Then just snap it..

Rather than making a plexiglass window to let light in. I put my light in the chamber.

You can just add some tape to make sure they stay. I tried cutting a hole and decided it was too much trouble. So I just used those.

Good luck

I hope you don't mind, but I gave one of the prints you sent me away in a contest. It was so much fun! Wouldn't have trusted giving one I made, even if I had one, away,lol.

Am gonna start making some on that "special" card stock I was telling you about. I'll make sure you get the first complete set,LMAO.  :grin:

which print did you give away?

when I made my glove box...I drilled out a circle pattern with a sharp drill bit in a high speed drill...in a tight pattern.
popped out the plexi glass circle.
then lapped out the cutout with a burr grinder...to fit to size.
the arm holes were perfectly tight and round...I still have a good eye!~

years of working on boiler tubes helped!~

That dremel has a hole cutter that is awesome, made a temple on a scrap piece of wood, perfect snug fits every time, no lapping, save that for the old penis. Envy that is,lmao.

Wasn't any that were under glass. I'll probably never use those, too pretty. Then I probably woundn't use any that are "autographed".
Too much sentimental value, so, maybe you could send some more,LMAO. :grin:

Clutch won and I let him have his pick.

Yeah i tried a razor knife, almost sliced my finger... Well i was think hack saw with the small teeth but I'm not sure if it would be worth purchasing without being for sure. Is it even cutable or will it crack? Crack is bad.




Trace the shape you want on the acrylic with a marker and then take a scoring knife to it. You'll find it at any hardware store for $5-7. It's angled so that you have better control over cutting. Take it easy the first pass so that you don't screw up. The next few passes, the blade with catch the groove and you can put some weight into it. I usually do 4-5 passes and then place the acrylic sheet on the edge of a table and punch it with enough force to break it clean along the groove.

Much cleaner/quicker than a hacksaw.

Okay, back to the origional question. I have never needed anything more the my pocket knife and a ledge to cut/break plexi glass. I make score along where i want the plexi glass to break. Then place it on the edge of my front deck, you could use a desk, counter, any type of hard surface with a drop of about a half a foot or so. Place the plexi glass so that the scoring is lined up with the edge, then apply pressure. Voila, cut plexi glass. Also if you purchase it at home depot they can cut it for you there witha nifty saw.

Thats exactly how plexi glass is saposed to be cut.. Just score and crack. I just like using power tools, and table saw's are waaay faster..

You can put a regular plywood skill saw blade on backwards. That will cut it easy and clean.
They also make steel cutting blades that work great also. Put some masking tape strips on the saw plate to prevent the plate from scratching up the material too much.
