I don't know if your magnets will stick. My suggestion would be to use a thinner piece of acrylic, like maybe 1/16 to increase the chances of the magnetic penetration.

It's thick and it's strong which was perfect. Only issue was the one I was given (used curbside pickup) had it's film coming off on one side witch made it hard to use because I cut all 4 sides off and made several holes throughout the plate.

I bought this to laminate together for router jigs. The first thing was a base plate that attached to my router base and then dropped into the router table I had made. The second is for a jib that the router attaches to and is used to create a larger working surface when cutting mortises, tenons, rabbets, dados, etc. I cut this on my table saw and in order to avoid chipping or cracking the plexigass at the end of the cut you have to cut into one end, flip the piece and make the rest of the cut. This way when the blade is near the end of the cut, the material is already done and cannot crack or break. I laminated these sheets with CA glue and clamped them. I used countersink bits to drill holes through and have the screw heads sit below the surface. For the router table plate, I drilled the center hole and then enlarged it with a jigsaw. For the other plate, I used a 35mm forstner bit I had. The plexiglass held up well even after tons of cutting and drilling. The router table plate works perfectly and holds the router to the table securely even while running large router bits. I like that I can see through and see what is beneath the plate - very hand when cutting mortises

I am giving this 2 stars, not because of the quality of the acrylic sheet, but because of Optix's bonehead move of putting a super-sticky label on the sheet. Presumably, you buy a clear acrylic sheet to be CLEAR! I scrubbed at the label for quite a while, and there is still residue. I need sun to be able to shine clearly through the sheet, and the large label residue will affect that. There is a protective covering on one side of the sheet - the label should go on that, no the sheet itself.

Exactly What I Needed
This Acrylic Sheet was extremely easy to cut with a CO2 Laser for my current arcade project. It is also very durable for heavy use.

This is a great alternative to a $135 refrigerator shelf. Of course it doesn't match, but it's inside the fridge. I was able to score it and cut it with a jigsaw, very nicely. Then I just ran over the edges with an orbital saw, 220 grit paper, just to take off the sharp edges and any rough spots. Perfect!
