    plexi cases....

    Just curious as to what you all are using for holding plexi together, the last time I used 2 part epoxy and it worked alright, but I also have seen that some are using something else that "melts" the two pieces together? Just trying to get some ideas for my new case that I'm gonna start building sometime soon, when I get time stupid school!

    Hi,

    I tried to use acetone ( hope its written like this) , think is a kind of alcohol - Dont know but for the plexi i bought it didn't work so I took my hotglue gun (hope i translated it properly) ( u have to get a person to help you because you have to do precise and quick work.
    The top of my case is fixed with two screws and a piece of doubleside tape ( didn't got little angles yet and i'm waiting to have all i want in the box - If you wanna take a look at my case take feel free to visit my homepage ( see sig)


    Regards

    Felix

    I used metal "L" brackets. I like the metal on plastic look, but I know some don't.

    I'll probably just two part epoxy it again.

    Just need to be a little more careful this time, last time i had problems with too much on so it dripped then i would do too little, gotta find the sweet spot.

    I must have been using ****ty epoxy, because it didn't hold up for me.. I ended up just using screws. Which I think makes the case more rugged anyway
