Baltic Birch Ply run


#1

I’m going to Windsor Plywood Wednesday morning, to pick up 2.5’x2.5’ sheets of 3mm and 6mm Baltic Birch Ply (classic 5x5 sheets cut in 4 to fit nicely on the laser bed).

6mm sheets are $9
3mm sheets are $6

If you’re interested in some, let me know by Tuesday. I can always take last minute requests but they don’t have much stock.


#2

Do they have 1/16"/1.5mm? If so I’ll take one please :slight_smile:


#3

Haven’t seen this size before. they have something super thin, but I think it’s thinner than that, for model making I suppose. It’s at least 3 or 4 times the cost of the 3mm.
You can call them to confirm. Also if not 3mm or 6mm, I’d have to take the whole sheet (so 4 smaller ones)

https://www.windsorplywood.com/product/birch-aircraft-plywood/ if they have it in stock I’d love whatever is the largest size 1.5mm for a reasonable price, say under $50 :slight_smile: Thanks! If they don’t have stock, or you’re not able to get it for me, it’s not a problem at all.


#5

Yep, looks like what I saw last time at over $60. Will double-check .


#6

The aircraft plywood is 3-ply and 0.8mm thick. It is quite expensive. The last time I bought some for laser engraving business cards was over a year ago and it was about $75 for a 4x4 foot sheet. Lee Valley sells it in 2x2 foot sheets for about $35.


#7

PJ White tends to be a bit less expensive than Windsor for BB plywood.


#8

4 sheets of 3mm for me if not too much effort for you.

Thanks

Mark


#9

No problem!


#10

Thanks! I’m after 1.5mm, that might be different. I’ll hit up Lee Valley myself if there’s no joy at Windsor, I live dangerously close. :wink:


#11

$86 for a 4x4 1.5mm aircraft BB ply. I went ahead and did not get you one


#12

haha, thanks. I’ll figure out my own stuff when the airplane workshop firms up :slight_smile:
