Chloroform, carefully "injected" along a neatly formed seam, will
produce a
strong solvent weld that is transparent. Use a small hypodermic syringe
"inject" the chloroform. Any runs will mar the plastic.

Hi Daniel,

Epoxy doesn't work too well with acyrlic, unless it has been roughed up.

Methylene Cloride solvent works well for acrylic/acrylic bonds.  It uses
technique called solvent welding, and the results are excellent.
