Where to get plexiglas

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have seen alot of people using Plexiglas on there rigs.Where does everyone get this stuff? I want to home depot and they didn't have any thick stuff and what little they had was WAY overpriced.Is this something i should order online,it would be cheaper to use real glass,i would just have to some how cut it myself, I hate paying someone to do anything for me.Could anyone help out?

You can buy it online--but first go through the Yellow Pages in your area and try and find a local supplier. There has to be one in Atlanta.

I am in a rural area so it's not as easy to find. When I lived in FL it was simple...

I go to a manufacturing corporation and ask for scraps, which can be as big as 5' long by 2' wide. I got some 1" thick aluminum plate once too, which would cost a lot to buy new! Scraps are your best bet, just tell them it's for school (if you're that age) and they give it up for free.

Probably not much help if you're in Atlanta, but up here on the west coast we have Industrial Plastics and Paint. They carry all kinds of plexi, acrylic, lexan, and they have a section where they sell cut-offs. It looks like Atlanta's got a fair number of plastics retailers; give some of these guys a call.
