    I don't know what to think about cracking? This prop can be used outside, but you would think it would take a low temp to get it to crack. Not sure but I am going to see about lighting this whole prop from the inside so maybe the heat from the light will keep it warm enough so it wont crack.

    I am not sure if this prop will take away from what it is used for, because of a new look, but who knows.

    Oh the prize was a new Viper!

    They make a plexiglass cutting blade for a circular saw... Jeff was right it's a blade with alot of tiny teeth.
    You MUST put masking tape where you are going to cut it.
    Now that being said it still might chip, I have tried everything to cut plexi.
    Owning The LAB we have a ton of glassed in props. What works best it an electric grinder with a cut of wheel, but where long sleeves, safety glasses and a dust mask.

    Home Depot sells a 7 1/4" circular saw blade for cutting plastics, they have very small teeth. I have always cut plexi glass and vinyl siding using a 24 tooth carbide blade turn backwards. I hate using acrylic sheets in the haunt, they always crack . I only like to use polycarbonate sheets. Phil Miller/ Frightland

    Phil,

    I donít have a need at the moment but do you have any good sources for polycarbonate (Lexan) sheets? Iíve seen some hardwares carry small pieces.

    You just never know when you might need some. hehe

    Hey Jeff,
    I get mine from E & T Plastics, they have 6 location, NJ, NY, OH, MN & IL. They will ship.
    1/4 " acrylic runs about $88.00, 1/8" poly carbonate is around $72.00 (4 x 8')
    The 1/8 Poly carbonate is much stronger than 1/4" acrylic, you can hit it with a hammer or punch it and won't crack.
    Poly is softer and scratches but easy to bend to make tube chambers. http://www.e-tplastics.com/html/locations.html
