-- Plaskolite Plexicutter
-- Price: ~ $1.99 USD
-- 03.23.2002

    One of the hottest products in case modding has been acrylic (plexiglas) windows. At the same time it's been one of the hardest materials to work with because it doesn't cut like glass, its doesn't cut like plastic and its very messy to cut with power tool.

    In recent weeks I've used a jigsaw to cut plexiglas, but it requires a tall and stable guide fence to get a straight cut and I've been very frustrated until last night. I went to Lowes to pick up a few parts to complete another project and as I turned the corner there was one of those little plastic holder strips holding a Plastic Cutting Knife.

   Now that got my attention so I took a closer look. The package doesn't specifically state its for cutting plexiglas but it says acrylic plastic cutting knife and it was only $1.99. That's a bargain even if it doesn't work too well.

   I'm sure a lot of people are thinking that the knife looks like a razor blade, let me assure you that its as sharp as one, and a bit stronger. The half inch long steel blade doesn't flex and the plastic handle is strong and sturdy.

    Since there aren't any moving parts to the knife, lets get to the cutting. I'm using a left-over piece of plexi that I picked up from a local hardware store for a previous project.
