    Anyone know of a good online, relatively inexpensive place to get custom cut plexi?

    I am needing 3 sheets of four feet by fourteen and a half inches.

    Thanks.

    I can't find a place in town that sells plexiglass. I will scour the yellow pages again, though. Maybe I missed a place.

    Thanks...

    Most hardware stores or building supplys will have it. Also some window companies.
    I got mine from either Lowes or Home Depot.

    Those stores will charge alot more markup on it. I was gonna go that way and then noticed the markup.

    I know you're trying to keep your costs down Knox. I think you'll be shocked at the cost of Plexi. I've never been able to find it very cheap.

    You aren't kidding! I am afraid the cost of the Plexi will equal the cost of everything else I have put into it. However, I sold my Animal Plastics tub rack this week and have some extra cash. I love CraigsList!

    Really? I've found plexiglass fairly cheap out at a hardware stores here. And they cut it to size for free. I just have to buy the whole sheet. I'll have to check, because it was a couple years ago last time I bought some, and I don't remember exactly what I paid, but I don't remember it being very expensive at the time.

    Maybe I'm wrong, though.

    A whole sheet? That would cost me $200 or more.

    I can't imagine I paid that much for mine. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise. I want to say something like $11 for one of their standard sheets.

    Are there different types of plexiglass? Because I'm fairly certain that's what I got, but if they had a cheap kind, that might explain it. I'll have to go home and check, though. I'm pretty sure I still have the receipt somewhere.

    Wow that's cheap. I'm not sure what that would be but I can't imagine it would be plexiglass. If it is you should sell pieces of it on ebay.

    There are different grades of acrylic. The cost will also vary depending on what thickness you get.

    It was probably a pretty low grade and it was pretty thin. Maybe that explains the price difference.
