    NO, because each skin is very thin - it's the over all thickness they quote. You need solid polycarbonate

    I'm thinking of making up some wooden H frames and then panelling each one with poly. I plan to use roofing batton, its totally cheap and the stuff at my local wood yard is really good quality, the yard is now huwsgrey.co.uk.

    The sizes are 19x38 and 25x50, both would work great for all sorts and the plan was to rout a dado that the panel would fit into, more or less how you would make basic panel and frame doors.

    Dont think ruff grubby old batton, that is up on your roof, think 2x1 treated timber that cleans up really well with a little sanding. A 4m length costs something like 2.50.

    I've always used Trent Plastics with good results. They cut to size and will do bends if needed - here is a 1 m square of 5 mm clear poly-carbonate:

    Andrew how about white PVC sheet 8x4, its used as cladding for public toilets and cubicles in places like Tesco, my local uPVC window place can probably get it for me at a better price than eBay but what do you think: uPVC Hygienic Wall Cladding Sheet 8x4 White

    Lee, I know the stuff, I've used it to line the toilet cubicle in my workshop :) Personally I think it's too fragile but then I'm used to industrial stuff and like to make things solid and bullet proof.

    Chaz pictures of the PCs attached:

    Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz, 2793 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

    Most have had the HDD removed but I've found a box of suitable HDD's !!!! Some have DVD / CD players, at least one has a floppy disk play - all are modular so you can make a specific one from bits of the others.

    All have a parallel and serial port so good for MACH3
