Those dice that I used didn't melt even with the highest setting. It only produced a lot of dust. Just take it slow and use low rpm, that is usually the trick with acrylic products.

thanks for the tips, i think i can handle a little dust, i just wasnt sure if they would melt or not. with them being an acrylic and all, i figured they would... i was confused i guess. hehe

mine didnt melt, i had my dremel at its highest speed, there was plenty of dust flying around. probably cuz i made the hole on mine deeper than it was supposed to be. but i didnt make it wide enough. but still, make it deep and use shoe goo to fill the hole and press the screw in so that the shoe goo comes up a little bit, it holds perfectly.

Heres a link to buy it from. it does bond better than most epoxies. One time on my skool bus we glued a few of the windows shut using that stuff. It didnt open for the rest of the school year. chek this out, straight form the site about it:
Quote:
FEATURES: Clear, gooey formula.
Flammable.
Strong, yet flexible.
Can be used to make watertight seals.
Works great for building battery packs, mounting receivers, servos,
speed controls, repairing Lexan, attaching woods, plastics or
almost anything.
