I'm going to go into some of the hardware shops in town tomorrow, pick up some sandpaper and try it out on Wednesday.

Expect many mispellings Wednesday night from my bleeding fingers :(

If you are only doing edges you can save yourself some time and sandpaper by sanding to about 600grit and using a small propane or butane blowtorch to flame polish the edges.

You get the same perfect polished edge (if done properly) and youll have saved your fingers a little bit.

Just run the very tip of the flame along the edge and youll see it start to go glassy if it starts to bubble you've gone to far and its back to sanding :roll:
Use a scrap piece and practice, you dont want to melt your nice piece of acrylic now do you! :D
