I personally use a knife, well like 3 knives (exacto, boxcutter, folding tactical) to score it and then I snap it.

IM assuming you scored the plexi and then snapped it and didnt cut it with the wheel cuz that would have taken you a really long time...

DEpending on the thickness of the plexi snapping it could have a lot of different outcomes. Thinner plexi snaps really easily and nicely and thicker plexi is just frustrating. You can snap plexi up to 3/8" and after that its recommended that its cut with a machine or saw of some kind. Even with thin plexi, sometimes im seeing that uneven pressure will cause the plexi to snap and break off unevenly.

Whats the thickness of your plexi? and how deep are you scoring it before snapping it?

Question DIY Splash Guard for Lighting on 55 Gallon hoods

Hey there!
I'm a bit new to this so please help me if you can.
I was wondering if anyone new how to make any splash guards for lights.
my hood on my fifty five has two lamps that are 18" and pretty sure the hood for each lamp is around 22".
If anyone knows a way on how to make my own splash guard so water doesn't get into the fixtures then it would be great!
