Welcome to the forum, Fritz12324.
You will find it to be one with members with all levels of experience, and the members are eager to share their experiences freely.
In addition to the preceding posts I would like to point out that there are a special class of router bits designed specifically for cutting polyacrylic, polycarbonate, related products and the myriad of trade names under which they are sold. These router bits are designated as O-flute.
To the best of my limited knowledge, they are limited to straight bits, and I unfortunately do not know if these straight bits can plunge cut.
I for one would be interested to know of your progress

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
