If you do plan to build one, this video will be a perfect start. Its directed towards those that have never built one before, and dont have a lot of tools to work with. So it will be easy to follow.

As for suppliers of acrylic in the USA.... i've used piedmont plastics before. The are local to me as well as in the states. I actually get my Weld-On there. (http://www.piedmontplastics.com/)

As for acrylic, i believe they are similar in price as well.

I only say piedmont because i used them before. Do some searching around first. try your phone book, and local fish clubs. Someone always knows something local.

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Joey @ Jun 5 2011, 06:05 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}></div>Could a 1/4 inch thick acrylic sheet be used in a standard size 125? I'm sure you'll cover this later on how to calculate thickness (if you have to, I don't really know). Great series, thanks Joey!
