Interestingly I just had an unpleasant experience drilling lucite this
morning. It grabbed like crazy and shattered the plastic repeatedly. I
tried different drill speeds, but nothing worked.
When I drilled partly from one side and then completed the hole from the
other, I got through without mishap. It still grabbed, but maybe a quarter
as much as all from one side. I think that if I had gotten my allignment
perfect, it wouldn't have grabbed at all, but I wasn't that lucky.
The other surprise was how easily it cut on the table saw.
