    Default Perspex washboards

    Have decided to invest in perspex washboards this winter.

    Any ideas for suppliers gratefully received, also can I cut the stuff myself or do I give the supplier a pattern?

    We took out wooden one from Amber to a local plastics man advertising in PBO. 2 hours later collected a finished job which included moving all the fittings over (locking mechanism and ventilator). It cost about 130 and was completely painless....

    I got some acrylic for my windows from sign makers. Pleased with moderate cost. Dunno if they stock thick enough for washboards though. I reckon if you take in a pattern they would put it through the bandsaw or whatever for you.

    Not at all sure I would even consider perspex, not very strong, not very safe, breaks with sharp edges.

    Lexan will take a lot more to break but care would still be needed.

    The chap whose workshop backs onto the cafe on the Whitehall Industrial Estate in Colchester is very good and cheap. I expect that's who it was. He's also a sailor, which helps.
