I'm not a big fan of Plexiglass ,it's great if you need to replace some glass but for jigs I don't like it ,, it's almost always under size and it is almost always comes with clear or blue film on it that's are to draw on...and like the name it will flex easy..HD/Lowes/Ace has it on hand.
But I do like acrylic ,it almost always comes with a paper cover that I can draw on and it comes in a true size, if you ask for 1/4" it will be 1/4" thick unlike Plexiglass ,if you ask for 1/4" you will get 9/32" thick the norm...
I sometimes get the acrylic from HD or Ace but you must look hard for it..
and take a your ruler with you...
When I have the time I also get some from the plastic companys in town out of the cut off box,,they just about all have one...some great deals, 50 to 75 cents ea....the stuff I like best is the scratch resistance to a point ,it's a flim that they put on the plastic,I think .......
