Find a major supplier in your area that handles large volumes of lexan and cuts to size.

Explain what your doing with it, expressing that you don't need a whole sheet and by the way do you fish. I will trade a few baits for some of your large cut-offs. You will most likely strike a deal and get you lexan for virtually nothing.

Lexan is the GE name brand for polycarbonate. You can order 1'x1' sheets of various thicknesses from mcmaster.com. They also carry G-10 and G-11 circuit board and almost any kind of wire you can think of. Decent prices, fast shipping and good service in my experience.

You can also find it on ebay. There are some outfits that sell their drop-off pieces on there. If you don't see the thickness you want go to their on-line store and search there. Just another option for you.

Let's look at these sizes.

0.223 is close to .250 aka .25 or a 1/4 inch.

0.092 is equal to about 2 mm or based on a quarter inch as a comparison, would be around 3/32 of an inch.

I think you'd be safe with .092

If you can't find what you're looking for let me know I get polycarb in clear, beige, black, in textured or not. Maybe we could do a swap. PM me if you're interested.
