I have used clear perspex before, siliconing a marble as a handle type thing.

VERY expensive these days compared to back then.

I have clear perspex covers on my fry tanks with a 20mm hole drilled into one end as a finger hole but also doubles up as a hosepipe holder.

I was in the right place at the right time.
I got 25 10mm sheets that were being thrown away.
