Thread: Acrylic Display Box

  1. #1

    Default Acrylic Display Box

    Hey all, i'm looking for an acrylic display box. approx h15 x 10 x 10.

    Have called up all action city,dollz inc and games connection outlets. Have also tried google and those factories at ubi/eunos etc. Either don't sell, out of stock or take time to custom make.

    Any idea where else i can find them? would be going brasbasah and muji next.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks everyone!

    acrylic is not that inexpensive as it's derive from crude oil.. it's easy to join acrylic pcs together to form the box but u need to purchase the sheet first. Lemme know if u need help/advice

    You use chloroform. You know the ones where people dip the hankies into and then make people unconscious.

    err, those are banned long ago...

    now when you go to shops, they only give you the plastic glue.

    Put the joints properly first, den paint the chloroform on the acrylic. U'll see the plastic turn abit whitish (especially if u're using red acrylic) and it will stick.

    If u pour too much, will see abit of smoke as well.
    If u take chloroform and apply abit to ur skin very shiok~ Very cooling~

    Not 100% sure, if Daiso has display cases made out of acrylic.
    Saw them a while back, and they have different sizes too.

    OT, they also have a good range of silver oxide button batteries if you need them for older cameras.

    cheers

    Go to China Square Central (behind great eastern building), go to 2nd Floor, uncle Ng (Ng's collection) and ask him if he has those. there are 3 level and 4 level version, small medium and large.
    I cannot remember the model number but I stick to the largest one. Japan product but made in china. That stuff gone off the shelf really fast.
