Nice!  I was going to suggest a utility/razor knife (like a box cutter). But looks like you got it.

Yeah..and you can use the old Zippo ones as templates for whatever you decide to put in there.  You'll know the exact size and all.

Thats actually what i did. I used a box cutter on the top to cut as much glue oit as i could. It was very very little. Then i used the swiss army knife and jabbed it into the hole that the box cutter made.

I got the entire blade in there and used it just like you would when sawing a log in half. I sawed through the glue and plus the pressure the knife put in on tje small space it just popped off

Yep thats what im gonna do. If you buy plexiglass at lowes they will cut it for free. So hopefully if i give them one of these signs they can cut it exact

And i come to all you creatively minded people once again. Me and a couple of the people who have done these zippo displays are trying to figure out a good way to cover up the zippo logos on all of the shelves. There are 1 on each shelf 2 shelves have the logo on the top and 2 jave them on the bottom. I have an idea, but i want to hear from yall first. Thanks for reading

Well we've talked about that. I think one of them tried that, but they are raised letters and it just didnt look right

Maybe thin but stiff cardboard instead with little shims on the ends.

That's a good idea.  Do you have access to the backside?  Because you can probably just use a small magnet to hold those pins on.
