I had worked with a carpenter at a government job for a short time and he 
said that one of the keys to preventing plexi from shattering is to leave 
the protective coating on.

Plus it helps to drill pilot holes and step through the various sizes of 
bits to keep pressure and vibration to a minimum.

He had a special circular saw blade that was designed for cutting plexiglass 
(looked like one I saw on a chop saw in an aluminum fabricators shop), but 
it was seriously expensive!
