Plexiglas Fabrication Tools

Saw

Compound Miter or Table

I have the blue ryobi gen before this. Damn thing wont lock true to save its life but otherwise is a fine tool that ive used quite a bit for close to a decade now. I think later versions added a detente at common angles. 

a table saw will do fine as well

Blade

obviously match to your arbor & blade capacity but 80 to 96 tooth is the sweet spot.

For plexi ive used nothing but the cheep harbor freight blades. I’ve had people even ask how I got such nice cuts.
