This is the latest e-mail from Langley Models, not much help to anyone outside the UK I'm afraid. :

Hi Bob,

We are very happy to take orders by phone (01603 621959) and to make sure you get the right item and price, it will be best to ask for the models department. We can then dispatch, subject to a shipping charge. Unfortunately at present we do not ship overseas but any UK orders will be welcome.

Regards

Andy Lynn-Smith (Website Manager)


I'm still looking elsewhere so maybe something else will turn up.

I have done a little more research on this, Bob. I have found a couple of firms that supply Nudec Petg - but only in huge sheets. Presumably our members would never need such a large quantity and the transport costs are likely to be prohibitive.

However, it appears that Sign Makers use this stuff so it might be worthwhile approaching some of those to see if they can supply smaller pieces - or even offcuts.

I can get it by the palette load as well Perry and as you say it comes in huge sheets. I have e-mailed another company who sells it in bulk but they do have a retail desk so I will see what they have to say.

It appears I may have come up with a firm that can supply smaller quantities of Petg.

I was looking in a Mail Order catalogue for tools and materials from Squires. The catalogue expired in August this year (2008) but I can't imagine it will have changed too much since then.

 

They list clear PETG in sheet size 228mm x 330mm as follows:

Code 916-420 Clear PETG Sheet .020" (0.5mm) £1.75

Code 916-440 Clear PETG Sheet .040" (1.0mm) £1.99

Code 916-460 Clear PETG Sheet  .060" (1.5mm) £2.65

Code 916-480 Clear PETG Sheet  .080" (2.0mm) £2.85

Prices included VAT @ 17.5%

Minimum order £10, POST FREE. Overseas postage at cost.

Website not yet up and running, but will be at: http://www.squirestools.com

Email: sales@squirestools.com

Order by telephone: 01243-842424

Fax: 01243-842525

Address:

Squires Model and Craft Tools

100 London Road

Bognor Regis

West Sussex

PO21 1DD

This firm has a HUGE catalogue of tools and materials. I have purchased from them at Model Railway Shows but not yet by mail order. I don't forsee there being a problem though.

Nice one Perry and I have put it in the Forum Index, cross referenced to Windows, Glazing and PETG itself. Thanks again.

Brilliant, Perry, I stupidly didn't think of Squires, although why not I can't think, they seem to do everything :exclam

The glazing is on page 332 of the current catalogue and they list clear PETG in sheet size 228mm x 330mm as follows:

Code 916-420 Clear PETG Sheet .020" (0.5mm) £1.85

Code 916-440 Clear PETG Sheet .040" (1.0mm) £1.99

Code 916-460 Clear PETG Sheet  .060" (1.5mm) £2.75

Code 916-480 Clear PETG Sheet  .080" (2.0mm) £2.99

A small price increase on three of the items, but everything else remains the same.

Good digging, mate :exclam:exclam

BTW   ...   closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day, closing at 3.30pm Christmas Eve, all other times and days as normal.

Yes Peter, it's also in the Fiorum Index as a baseboard bits and pieces supplier.

Although this is an old thread I thought it worth adding to.









PETG is also used to make some clear packaging, its basically the same material used in PET plastic drinks bottles but modified for use in thermoforming to make tray or blister packaging.

 

So if you keep your eyes open you could find a free source for it.

Terific find there, mouldable clear glazing - I wonder if its availabe in plain white and plain black as I can see many uses for it.

However,and if I may be excused for butting in like this,  I have another way of forming bow bay windows that may be of interest and the attatched drawing shows how.

Cheers.

Allan

Well there you have it twice, little and large - just don't ask how !

Computers are getting more less user friendly by the day and I reckon there's a fortune to be made by someone who scraps the whole complicated system and starts afresh with a universal system that's, simple to use, safe, and one where everyone isn't trying to outsmart each other - and I reckon It'll come soon, it's just got to.And as for filing systems....well.....a thousand pictures  scattered here, there, and everywhare never to be found again - oh yeh, it's gotta come, the whole twisted mess seriously needs simplifying.

Cos if it don't I'll go mad and I'm halway there already !!

Allan.

Maybe Perry can buy all there stock (well some anyway..) and become an on-seller to those of us who cannot get hold of it. ;-);-)

Put me down for one sheet !

Cheers, Gary.
