Another great job, Harry. Thanks for the tutorial.
I agree about the melting.
Barb, Leave the protective paper on both sides of the acrylic. You won't have as much melting. Doubt that would help much with anything thicker than 1/8", though.
I needed to make 48 disks from 1/8 Lexan. It only comes with the plastic protective covering. It was quite a job to clean the edges of the melted stuff. Oil helped with cooling. Quite messy.
