Tool to cut acrylic

Postby Paddy » Mon Feb 06, 2006 1:49 pm

Hi all.

Can someone please help me. A friends father is making a greenhouse using old sheets of acrylic. Problem is, all he has succeeded in doing is blunt tools and melt the acrylic. Can anyone suggest a tool for a router or saw that would be able to cut 5ml sheets of acrylic?

Thanks in advance

Have a look at:

My favourite method would be the score and bend method (like you would use for glass) - unless of course you are trying to cut complex shapes.
