    It says on the tube of jb weld that it can bond hard plastics, so I am taking that as a yes.

    Personally I would test it on some scrap pieces of Plexie first so as not to ruin your purdy case.
    Ever wonder how deep the oceans would be if there weren't any spounges?

    Best stuff i've ever used for bonding plexi is PVC cement. I've used everything you could think of to bond plexi, and PVC cement is by far the most superior and easiest to work with. At least IMO.

    Can't you make your own glue by melting a scrap piece of plexi in acetone? I'm not sure if this is for plexi or for acrylic, though.

    Edit: Plexiglass is just a brand name of acrylic, so it should work

    For plexi-to-plexi gluing, just get Weld-On. Made especially for this. (Clear too)

    JB Weld will work for LOW STRENGTH bonds with plexi, and unless you rough it up with sandpaper, it will not stick that well at all. I've pulled plexi bonded with JBWeld apart with my fingers, not much force at all.
