    Let's hope your contact feels inspired to send more plexi your way at a discount as a result of this, Jerry. I know I would !

        Neato. Plexiglass is kinda fun to cut isn't it? It makes for a nice change of pace. You did justice to the plexi, Jerry.

          Hi Jerry, I have never done a piece with plexi ut you may have just inspired me to give it a try. Your supplier should be giving you good discounts from now on. That is an excellent piece af art my friend. What blades and at what speeds did you use and did you have any trouble? Steve

              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                WOW! I know I'm going to try cutting plexi glass for something different to cut!! Very cool indeed!!

                Hey BobD, did you get all the information on the blades for cutting plexi? Maybe you can put it in the mag somewhere. This is stuff I want to remember but forget and also forget where I saw it!

                      That looks excelent Jerry. I too am inspired. The blue seems almost iridescent. Great detail too.
                      Maybe you could give us the name of your supplier. I've looked, but can only find 1/8" plexy. I would really like to get my hands on some 1/4" stuff.

                        Thank you all very much, Steve I used the Olson 2/0 spiral blades and kept the saw a moderate speed not to fast yet not to slow don't stay in one spot very long though. I also put packing tape on the back side and never even had to sand.Thanks again to all of you.Jerry

                        BTW I used a forsner bit to drill the clock hole but I suggest you cut it with your saw as it got very hot and made the hole a little bigger than needed.

                            Nice job. Did you do anything to finish the edges? I seem to remember reading somewhere that applying ligher fluid on the cut edge and igniting it makes it smooth again.

                              That's very cool Jerry! Excellent job. We use a lot of plex at work for different types of signage, since we've been working 12 to 14 hours a day for the last couple months, I'm sure there's a lot of nice scraps I can bring home and play with.

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
