resdog is on a distinguished road
3/16" is a bit on the thin side. It'll will likely have a good bit of distortion if it's not in a frame. I wouldn't go below 1/4". I just replaced my 5/16" (8mm) acrylic with 1/4" and it was ok because it's bolted in place. I didn't want to pop for an entire 4x8 sheet of the 5/16" so I used the 1/4" which was more readily available.
