The tenants move out of the rental with the kitchen light fixture
missing the translucent lens panel. This is one of those four
fluorescent 4 feet long light fixture in a sheet metal frame using a
translucent panel. The pabel is four feet long and less than 2 feet
wide. I tried Home Depot. It has translucent panels only 2'x4'.
Anywhere else should I look? I am afraid the panel will crack if I cut
You will have to cut it, they all come in 2X4. Depending on the panel you
can sometimes score it with a razor blade and snap it along the line.
Otherwise a jig saw would be best, a circular or table saw will turn it to
splinters unless you have a balde with many teeth. An ordinary hack saw
should work too but you will need to support the edge you want to keep
pretty well while you cut.
A smaller hardware store or plastics specialty store or glass company might
cut it for you. Also check lighting specialty stores. Expect to pay more
