Case Modding - Would You Recommend This?

Would this be the right sort of thing to get along with a spare 360 shell to try it out on? I picked a Draper because it's a slightly cheaper alternative.
Also should I use plexiglass or acrylic plastic?

As far as case shaping goes, that tool you purchased will do the job. Be sure to look at the parts included as you might need a cutting bit also. The cuts always look rough, so don't forget the proper sanding wheels too.
Also, when you're trimming the 360 shell, fragments and white dust go everywhere. This isn't something you want to do in a bedroom or kitchen. Try to do this work outside if you don't have a designated shop area.
Oh, one last heads up ... eye protection. Don't ever cut without eye protection.

Cheers for the advice

I'm no chemist, but since Acrylic is stronger than Plexi, the fibers running in it must be longer. Longer fibers = more susceptible to fractures and chipping when cutting.
