Okay, having firmly grasped the Nettle, and having total confidence in the guy on the net, who cut it with his 14.4 rechargeable Dewalt saw, with the blade almost fully up, I did the same thing. You need to remember to start the saw, away from the perspex, but the result was brilliant. No chips. This was with a TT blade. I thought i would share, just in case anybody else, has the job to do. Its lets amazing light onto the tier below. Nom just got to re lay, and secure and re wire 8 points. great, thanks for all the advice. john

Perspex can easily be cut using a jigsaw just turn the speed down

I admit to being surprised, but i read many suggestions on the net, and it was the most recommended way. Me personally would not use a jigsaw, and my bandsaws throats were not deep enough. I have since also crosscut it with same method. john
