    Sterilite Bin Help?

    Hey guys, I'm baaaaack! Its been a little while since my hedgies, but I am giving it another go! Woot! This time I am building a cage with some sterilite bins. Only problem is... how do I cut these bad boys without cracking the whole thing? I have 2 bins that I would like to connect with a large PVC tube. I just need some tips on how I can cut the holes into it. Thanks so much for any info you can send my way!

    If you heat up the plastic some before cutting it, then it won't crack-if you have a blow dryer, that's probably easiest

    I ended up getting a nice drill to use and and soldering iron. It's messy, but it did work! Thanks Ann!

    Hehe! I finally got the cage all done. A couple of things needed to be fixed up here and there, but I was able to make do. I ended up buying a nice little 8-watt soldering iron (for future cages, lol), and I was pretty happy with the purchase. But I thought maybe you all might want to see the handy work! My Mama helped me!
