The back of the package indicates to use a straight edge, so I'm using a $0.99 metal ruler that I use for
I used a leather glove on the hand that was holding the ruler down in case of a slip. As I said earlier it is very sharp. Then I started to score the
plexiglas. The piece of plexi that I am using has a really badly broken edge, that I thought I would clean up, so I started to score the piece. The first few times I scored the

- Price $1.99, that's hard to beat
- Very Sturdy
- Easy to use
- Scoring plexiglas can take a while
