Thank you for the link, I will explore that!
Near as I can figure, they come in at about a dime apiece, and I didn’t see anything about a finish on them. The basswood is at 11 cents, so unless I figure tube time expense, a near wash. About $10 more for the 30 sheets I need, and will save the finish step.
That 1/32nd stuff is $7.40/sqft, and it’s a pretty small piece. I suppose it’s good to know but I don’t call that inexpensive.
