Several web sights say plexiglass melts at 320 degrees. If I have a computer fax venting heat what are my odds of this working.

looks cool man, keep the wiring tidy inside and maybe install a few blue LEDs in there too and it'll be the envy of all of us at HBT

A blue light on the inside to give a glow through the entire case. I like that idea.

that...is beautiful. now, you have to make your wiring neat and clean.

questions:

1. is it watertight?
2. how did you cut it?
3. got any build pics?
4.cost for building it?
5.are you a wizard?

How thick is that plexiglass? Did you have any trouble mounting any if the components in it, due to the thickness?

I have often thought a clear box would be very cool, especially with LED's. Congrats on doing what others have only thought about!
