    How large and how thick? I've had great luck with scraps from a plastic store that are extremely low in price. I've done quite a bit of math when comparing prices and, for the most part, everyone online is very competitive in pricing with each other. Straight from Amazon for 6mm 24x48in Cast Acrylic was the cheapest. Get the Honey savings chrome extension and save even more! I thought it was BS. How could it be that easy to save money? I wish I would have downloaded it before all my recent orders. Would have saved tons.

    I get mine from a couple of shops on eBay. Plastics Online is one, they sell official Perspex branded acrylic at pretty good prices, and as a result clearly list if it's extruded or cast.

    Usually I order my acrylic at https://www.plexiglas-shop.com/ , they sell the genuine plexiglass stuff made by Evonic (the best in my opinion ;) ). Sometimes I even buy the cheap scrap sheets at my local hardwarestore, it's alot cheaper then ordering it online.

    None of these seem to operate in the UK. Any recommendations for UK suppliers?

    I recently used Simplyplastics for a peice of 10mm cast. Was cut exactly to the size requested, very well protected for delivery.
