Anyone got any leads?

Plenty of 3 and 4mm in the larger sheets
Plenty of postcard-sized bits in 2mm

Tried Para, Medical supplies (orthotics etc), scrapbook supplies, school supplies.......Now I'm trying a kayakfishing forum :lol:

I use this place and find them very good.

If you call them they might be able to put you on to some that has the thinner sheets if they dont have it.

Cheers guys :y:

Ice: Looked at neo, but too much stretch at that thickness.

Jeff: It's 2mm thick, not 2m I'm after :lol: I passed your offer onto Mrs. Dwarf and suggested it would be a simple matter to get the bread knife and slice 2mm thicknesses off it. She didn't laugh with me.

Winch: Excellent lead, will follow up today. :y:

Also found a TM seller who had some earlier, so am chasing them to see if they have any more.

The hive mind does it again.
Thanks.

Making a a couple of wide, self supporting belts for a costume party. Looked at the standard issue sleeping mat foam, but that's too thick as it needs to fold slightly when I'm breaking out my disco moves :rock:

Ah ok... We have large Teflon plastic type sheets that are about 5 mm thick.... They could be cut down to make a belt but they'd be quite stiff and I'd suggest a bit uncomfortable !
