Re: polycarbonate window thickness?

Can I sort of hijack this thread a bit, and ask if you buy acryllic or lexan, or plexi, what methods one can use to cut it? I've heard of using water, and installing a blade backward in a circular saw... Years ago I used a dremel and a reinforced cutting wheel (with dubious success, but it kind of worked, just required polishing the edges)...

3/8" lexan is some pretty stout stuff. Did you find it hard to drill through?
