ya, the low end acrylic at home depot is kinda... well... cheap, drilling plexiglass is pretty tricky i usualy do it at the highest speed on my drill press, almost melting the bit thru, cause it likes to shoot up the bit and crack right after you go all the way thru. I use the cheap stuff for pickguards and the high grade stuff from local plastics shops for templates.
