    I don't know where you are but we have a chain of hardware stores called "Ace".I just had a piece cut that was 29" by 13" and it cost $6 plexiglass included. If you can't find a hardware store that cuts it I'm told Home Depot sells something that will cut it and it costs just a few dollars.

    mine got stepped on by a DD before i moved everything to the basement. i wanted to cry, but it was my own fault for having it on the floor. clear packing tape has been on it for 5 yrs or so, and it still works fine.

    A skill saw or band saw would do a good job, with as many little teeth as possible on the blade. I did not read the above website but I do not know, personally, how to finish the edges. I have Plexiglas galore. Why buy all these tools when I can make my own. I have my own woodshop. Darn me.

    Plexiglass is cut with a saw with the blade turned backwards--at least that's what they do in rough construction. It leaves an ugly cut. I suggest you go to your local glass shop and ask if they can cut it. Usually they have a heated wire that the 'cut' through the plexiglass. It leaves a nice clean edge.

    So not only is your DH sweet, so is your son! My DH was helping me load the car for a class & the ruler fell onto the concrete. We took it to True Value & they fixed me up.

    So...what WAS the ruler doing on the floor?

    ...or what was your husband doing walking on your cutting table???
