sure, that'd be great jprox. obviously a cincinnati supplier would be better for me since i'd have to pay the state sales tax on the usplastics order, plus gas and driving time, but let me know what you get and how much you save. i posted that link b/c there are so many plastics subcatagories in our cincinnati yellow pages that i had no idea where to start.

It *can* cause very minor crazing depending on the material you are gluing, eg., extruded acrylic esp tube. But it won't help anything either except possibly aesthetics so....

Look in the yellow pages under "plastics - rods, tubes, sheets" or something to this effect

BTW $150 for good quality 3/8" (9mm) cell cast (Cyro GP, Polycast, Plexiglas G) acrylic is pretty reasonable, especially retail.

HTH,
