    Guys, guys, guys!!! Of course you have to remove the strip of the film where the other side will be glued to. I thought it goes without saying.๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ross the glue is a solvent type of adhesive witch means it soften/melts the plexi so it bonds the 2 surfaces together. If the adhesive gets under the film it does not necessarily mean the it will glue the film to the plexi but it will still soften the plexi under the film and cause an ugly blemish. Len

    The "glue" isnt an adhesive, it is a solvent that actually "melts" a thin layer of the adjacent Plexiglas sheets & they ended up "welded" to each other. The clamps, being another material, will not stick to the joint.

    Len1. So the film will be glued also. . . Is there any material that glue WON'T adhere to, that could be used to protect the clamping parts?

    AndyN I'm sorry but you must remove the protective film at least from around the edges to be glued or the adhesive can wick under the film and glue the film to the plexi.

    I thank you all.

    Given the costs of specialized companies, I'm sure that I will have to do the work myself.

    We will keep you informed of developments.

    One more thing, perspex comes with a protective film in most cases. Use it as a masking medium to stop the glue from creeping all over the place.

    Ross you really do not want anything to be in contact with the plexi at the joint because the adhesive will wick under any thing that is touching the joint. Rounded corners should be OK but be cautious on how much adhesive you apply. The adhesive is water thin and will go every place if too much is applied. Experiment on some scrap pieces to get a feel for it. Len

    This is part of the magic of doing the gluing perfectly. There is no reason that the glue joints MUST be done VERTICALLY. Brick is the case, holes are the top PHOTO1. ROTATE case to its side PHOTO2 to glue, ROTATE case to its side PHOTO3 to glue, ROTATE case to its side PHOTO4 to glue.Turn upside down and glue on the top.Glue joint is always at the lower right corner, until the end, when it is at the bottom. (THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX๐Ÿ˜‰)Len1 & hermank could address this problem with better experience
