I need recommendations for cutting plastic on a 4x4 Rubik's brand cube
I'm trying to make a barrel out of it.

Some people use hacksaws. Personally, I use a cutting blade on my dremel. Both seem to get the job done fairly well.

A good file can cut plastic fairly fast, and you'll want one for cleanup regardless of how you cut.

Thanks for this, I am also making a barrel out of a 3x3 and I was wondering what to use to cut it. It seems the hacksaw I had in mind will work perfectly! :scrambled: :solved:
