+1 what he said
HSS router bits is what we cut the plex and Acrylics for making reptile habitats and saltwater aquariums and terrariums...
and as he mentioned cleared the acrylic with a blue flame torch.

there is a trick spray to keep them from burning the edges it is a silicone spray you spray the glass and bit with before cutting it helps keep the bit cool can be found at most plastic suppliers... been a while since I bought any.
