Use heat, try melting your way into the slots. It's only plastic.

I was starting to wind my primary (3/16" copper tubing with 3/16" between
turns). I made 4 plexi supports and drilled 3/16" holes to wind the
primary in. I mounted them with silicone onto my TC table I made. I
waited over a day for the silicone to dry. I had my girlfriend come over
to help, we got almost half way and all the silicone supports ripped off,
GRR!!! It was getting very hard to rotate through as well. I don't know
what to do now.
I know a lot of you say to drill the holes half way into the supports so
the tubing will "snap" in but it is too late for that. I have a chop saw
but it has a standard DeWalt blade (for wood) in it. Even if I went slow
I would be scared that it would crack, chip, or shatter. Any suggestions
