i have some bad news concerning my mouse modding plans... the only plexiglass i can find in my town is 1/4" thick. And my mouse wheel is 7mm thick!!!! OH NOES!!!! would it be possible to take two chunks of pelxi and glue them together to make a nice thick block, then i can sand down the sides to make it 7mm thick? this of course has to be done before i start to spin the thing to make the wheel shape from it. Im looking for a technique and type of glue to use to make it not fall apart while i file it down. Granted i only need about 1/32" out of another sheet to make it the right size, but i dont want a mouse wheel thats smaller than the core piece for that will look stupid.

Epoxies will do just fine. I've used two component glues many times with plexi and they give good results. Some glues will make the plexi "clowdy" because the vapors from the glue react with the plexi but if you don't want 100% transparency, you can quite safely use any glue that you find.
