    Does anyone know if and where I could buy pre-made hanger bars (hanger strips) for a large backlit sign box that I'm making a new face for? EX-13 frame. 4' x 21'.

    There used to be a company/product called "Quick Strip", that offered both acrylic and polycarb bars but I can't find them anymore.

    I really don't want to cut the hanger bars myself on the saw.

    Any help/insight/tips would be appreciated!

    When you buy it off the roll it will come 52". You need to cut the excess off anyway. perfect for hanger strip.

    Thank you Pat. That's what I've done in the past, and probably what I'll end up doing again, since I can't find the pre-made bars available.
    I have a safety speed cut panel saw, and cutting tiny 1/2" strips on it isn't any fun.

    On the CNC router, I tend to cut a series of C's connected to one another, so that each 1/2" is still connected to a 4' piece. Takes a lot of the vibration out. Make sure to start from the top and work your way down.
