I have some glass 1x3 microscope slides that I need to cut down in
size. The store where I bought them told me they sold slides to rubber
stampers and to ask advice on discussion group.

where can I get acrylic to use instead of glass?

Most hardware stores sell inexpensive glass cutters; you simply score the
glass, not pressing down too hard, and tap the part you don't want with the
other end of the cutting tool until it snaps off; with a little practice,
it's easy to get a clean edge.

Acrylic what? microscope slides? I don't know, but if you look in the
yellow pages under "plastics" you're likely to find someone who sells clear
acrylic in various gauges that might suit your purpose.

If you aren't worried about the thickness of the glass, they sell glass
coverslips in all different sizes.
