Actually Mike cyanoacrylate works quite well for many jobs, BUT what many 
people don't seem to understand is less is better with this stuff! The best 
solvent/adhesive for plexiglass (methylmethacrolate) is methylene chloride
BUT it has to be used correctly. You have to keep applying it to the edges 
untill they get sticky and then put the parts together and clamp for 24
