Acrylic for Vega Duplicator Plugfest 2017

Hi all,
I was recently working at a sign shop and the owner was throwing away all of there acrylic. I've been using acrylic and plexy glass for years on my Vega to make templates. I've already shared some with other builders. I've cut the sheets down to a manageable size of 1/4'' thick at the largest by 4" x 15" + or -. If you use this material already you know it can be pricey, there are approximately 160 pieces.

My plan is to put some bundles together. If you want a bundle I will be at Plugfest handing them out. I'm not interested in shipping these so if you can't get to Plugfest ask a buddy who is.

Nice.
I just bought a sheet of this stuff and it cost @$35.
Worse, it now comes with a plastic instead of paper coating that makes tracing outlines or filing to a final shape difficult.

I'm thinking what ever you would like to give would be great!! I plan on taking all of the money and giving it to someone who really needs it right now.

This is a friend of Mike Thomas. I'm hoping to have something else to raffle off to help his situation.
