I think that you might be speaking/writing to me, but my name is not John.

To bend the acrylic, I used a couple of wood workers vices and sandwitched the acrylic at the edge of my portable work horse between the work horse and another board. I then "slowly" applied heat using my propane torch. Once the acrylic began to soften, I slowly bent it to an angle I predetermined. Certainly not an exact science.

BTW, if you try this make sure you do it outside!

I'm John

BTW, I used to use the same techniques when making my own chassis for cars back in the early 90's...though I usually kept the heat on too long and it bubbled.
