in the process of making my "glow-pad" I discovered that plexi-glass is in fact nothing like glass, but a plastic... it is difficult to "grind" with anything, I actually destroyed a grinding wheel trying to smooth out the edges of my pad... when plastic grinds it gets hot and melts, causing all the nooks and crannies in the grinder to be filled in making it a smooth grinding surface, essentially destroying it... only way I know is to actually "cut" the plastic… if you have a wood rasp you can use that, a wood rasp consists of basically 25 little blades that cut into the plastic, then use sandpaper (it will get ruined but that’s a lot cheaper than a grinding wheel) to smooth it out further. Finally apply "plastic cement", it actually melts the plastic and makes it smooth, that should make it perfect, it took me 4 hours to do this… don’t expect a quick job
