Cutting 1inch perpex?

Post by scratch »

Hi, understand that there's other perspex cutting threads on the forum, but..

Anyone know how to cut 1inch thick perspex? What kind of saw? Don't want to mess it up!

I've done some with a handsaw. I suppose a jigsaw would work equally well - use a coarse blade (not metal cutting) and keep the speed down to prevent melting/clogging.
sent from my laptop using my fingers - because we REALLY need to know where it's come from.....
