Perspex Screen

Spent all day Saturday cutting and shaping a piece of 5mm tinted Perspex, heated and bent it to form a screen for my console. Polished the edges, curved the corners and drilled the mounting holes..... then cracked it right across the middle!!!
Aaa agh!

Anyone know of somewhere where I can get this done properly?

You're using the wrong material for the job, you need polycarbonate, very forgiving, and very easy to work.

Today's designs included some other fun


I am not trade before it kicks off,
simply help Ribnet members out at more than a fare price, I have possibly given away as much material and posted at my own cost, as I have sold

Hi Nugent, I hope you don't mind if I pick your brain for a moment. I have a 1965 Glastron Sportsman V171 that I restored a couple of years ago and the perepex is complete but opaque. It's got awkward curves on the corners of the screen, I quite fancy having a go at bending it myself. Would the best way forward to make plywood templates and gently heat the Perspex to the shape & let it cool ?
Thanks in advance.
