This was my 1st attempt at cutting plexiglass and I support these positive reviews. The blase worked flawlessly, did not gunk up, did not melt the plexiglass, and left an amazingly clean edge that did not need to be sanded. Great price and worth every penny.
These blades made exceptional cuts in the mirrored plexi glass I was cutting for the frozen river for my train lay out. The "regular" blades I had on hand were splitting and cracking the plexi. Outstanding product.
I made a windbreak for my wife's Miata from a 1/4" thick sheet of Lexan. This was my first time cutting sheet plastic and had planned to put a trim on the edges to hide expected rough, imperfect cuts. However, when completed, I was impressed by the exceptionally fine finish of the edges and found it unnecessary to sand or hide them. I used only one blade to cut straight lines, quarter radiuses and diminishing curves -- the latter two cuts were free-hand! The Bosch blade gave me good cutting control: I used the jigsaw's high speed setting without causing the Lexan to melt. My first-timer's confidence soared. An automotive hardware specialist saw the finished edges and said he thought the windbreak was made from glass - until he touched it. These blades are precision tools and can only imagine what they do in more capable hands.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accurate, cuts clean edges, does not overheat
Bought this to cut a piece of thin plexiglass. Was not able to figure out which speed would cut the plexiglass without splitting and cracking.
