Finding truly creative do-it-yourself applications involving engineering plastics is sometimes tough. But today I think we have a real winner! It is a short series (about 10 minutes total) of three YouTube videos showing a partial restoration of a pinball machine. In this case, a glass part that is impossible to find is replaced using Acrylic.

While some more detail on the fabrication end would have been welcome the videos really should get your creative juices going as you ponder – what else could be made from these materials? When you are considering uses for a clear glazing plastic that is many times stronger than glass – there should be a lot you can work with!

The following videos are ordered in sequence from first to last.
