  • Glue on Plexi

    I am working a pattern this evening and decided it would look so much better cut out of plexiglass/lexan, but I need to use glue on it.

    Does anyone know of a glue that is pliable for a couple minutes, stays transparent and would not show on plexiglass/lexan?

    I know someone on here will come up with an answer for me so I will start re cutting the pattern.

    You will want to read about it on there site. I have seen it occasionally at Lowes and Home Depot.

      Another great site is
      It's basically an adhesive database where you plug in what you want to glue to what--and it will make suggestions. I plugged in Plastic to Plastic and got a couple suggestions--household Goop and 5 minute epoxy...

      I would also suggest clear silicone...

        I like to use E6000 clear It can be found in any craft store and (Home Depot but not sure?) It stays flexible and clear and can be painted. Gluing a plastic to wood can cause problems because wood moves and plastic doesn't. Here is an example of this glue use.

          Those are excellent works you did there JT. When are you going to post those to the gallery so some of us can take a closer gander at your process?

                Sorry for not getting back to you Grizz, but I decided to go with the household goop since I had it in the shop. How did it turn out? Hell, it never got that far. Having a workout just cutting the plexi. Obviously not my usual brand....

                So, when I am done the cut, and on to the glue - I'll let you know how the Goop worked. Giggle.

                  The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

                  When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
                  Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

                  Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
                  by mccrookston
                  First time posting.
                  I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
                  I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
                  Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
                  Any ideas on what might be causing...

                  That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                  I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
