How did you join the plexiglass together? And how thick is it?
the main plates are 3mm thick and the end pieces are 5mm thick
there is an acrylic glue that i used (bought from the place where i bought the pexi; they sold me a small amount of the can as that i didn't need much)
the solvent glue was incredibly thin and had to use a syringe to administer the solvent
you place the plates together and let slide just a small amount of this solvent into the 'to be' joined edges
the solvent will flow in quite easily so don't use too much (make sure your cut edges are nice and flat - this makes a better weld)
let set and it makes a really hard weld
