SLC COMING!
« on: February 10, 2021, 06:56:56 PM »
I've gotten an order in progress.YAY!YAY!YAY!YAY!

Keeping my fingers crossed,  On the good news side, if everything works out,  I'll be getting many, many feet of the same film 18in. wide.  It is going to be 100 gauge(0.001in) instead of 75 gauge.  It's a big company, and like all of them,  niche products and helpful services have bit the dust and prices have gone up substantially.
I had several opportunities to order material from China(virtually all the laminating film is sourced that way).  I decided not to because, despite the extra cost,  any mixups with China order(and they happen all the time) getting things back in control takes a lot of time and worry.  The US manufacturer doesn't have similar production snafu possibilities.

Delivery is expected in 6-8weeks.  I'll probably need a week to get handing the wider film down pat.

The slightly heavier film will, of course, be slightly heavier.  In prior testing the heavier gauge is slightly harder to pull around corners using a heat gun.  The iron works better.  It's the exact same material from the same supplier.

Keep our fingers crossed!  Watch this website to keep posted.

Thanks John.  It feels great too.  It was really hard even getting a company to respond, much less say,  "Yeah, we can do that."  Good words to hear, that's for sure.
