Here it is. Sold by Micro Mark. I have thought of buying it, since I allready have their Chopper II which is a nice piece of kit.

As Eric said Micro Mark has them. I have been using one for a few years now. It is one of my most used tools that I have.

Cutting Plexi, is more of a "score & snap" technique rather than a hard cut. If your pieces can fit in the Dupli-cutter, it should work for keeping your "scores" consistent.

A large framing square might work just as well. You just need to keep your plexi scratch free when using it.

Roger that, on working with plexiglas/lexan/acrylics. Leave the paper on until all cuts are complete. You can draw your item on the paper or print it on an adhesive label and then stick it on the 'glas.

The Duplicutter is meant for working with styrene sheet. Works great for rail car sides and structures. Just be careful attaching the supplied sticky ruler to the cutting bar. Accuracy counts if you are generating multiple pieces of the same size.
