There's 3 main ways;

Epoxy;
pro's; quick and easy, generally good bond strength, readily available

con's; usually not a totally clear result, can tend to shear apart at the seam with moderate/extreme stresses (assuming the epoxy is the only thing holding the joint together)

solvent based perspex adhesive;
pro's; very strong joint strength, joint usually water clear, fast set time.

con's; can be difficult to use(water like consistency), spills on the perspex will cloud it, can cause clouding of the perspex around the joint, difficult to get hold of.

clear pvc plumbing adhesive;
pro's; easier to use than ^ (less runny), readily available, water clear joints (if done right), no clouding, almost as good bond strength (close enough)

con's; shrinks slightly when set, can have a "crazed" look in the joint (depends on application) longer setting time than ^.

I personally use the clear plumbing adhesive, the "crazed" look is only a problem when joining 2 peices of flat perspex together to form a thicker peice, in that case you delebratly use too much, clamp the peices together and scrape/sand off the excess when it's set.

Also these are some types of glue that could be used to glue perspex/plastic.

You can get the solvent you are looking for and the capillary needle dispensers from US Plastics or TAP Plastics. The Solvent has various names and there a slight variances to the formujla to allow for a longer set time but it basically melts the plastics together and fuses them. It's not a glue per se but a strong solvent that melts acrylic and leaves no residue.
