Hey gents,

I'd like to pick your brains for a minute. Any idea where I could source some clear plastic sheet that's 4mm thick? It has to be easy to cut/sand/polish with basic modelling hand tools. All I need is a piece the size of 52mm x 9mm x 4mm.

I've been keeping an eye out for some broken plastic parts from plastic shelving and all that but as of yet I've come up with nothing that meets my requirements. :oj

TIA

Thanks Paul! I saw all the listings on eBay but thought Perspex was supposed to be difficult to cut. I guess I can't go wrong with trying that as it's a small size and won't break the bank. Thanks the link :o)b

Also, thank you for offering to get some at work but unfortunately it must be 4mm thick :(

Cheers! [smilie=beer.gif]
