  • Source of good quality plywood in the UK?

    Hi, I am looking for a source of high grade Baltic birch plywood in the UK. In fact, the artist is my uncle who is based in Brazil. He cannot find a decent material which does not chip or crack on the scroll saw in his city and I promise I would try to find something better for him!

    A friend of mine is coming for a short visit next week and I would like to send the wood with him. it needs to fit in a bag, so I cannot send the 2.5m sheets I seen in the shops!

    Here is the spec of the sheets required for the project (thickness in millimeters needs to be rounded, I think):

    Baltic birch plywood
    3/4" x 1.1/2" x 1.1/2" 19.05mm x 38mm x 38mm
    2 pieces 1/2" x 12" x 12" 12.7mm x 305mm x 305mm
    3/8" x 12" x 12" 9.5mm x 305mm x 305mm
    1/4" x 12" x 12" 6.35mm x 305mm x 305mm
    2 pieces 1/8" x 12" x 12" 3.18mm x 305mm x 305mm

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

    Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...

    The saw was plugged into a Festool Midi vac, which was plugged directly into a wall outlet.

    Rolf, could you explain your setup again? It appears your saw is plugged into foot switch which is plugged into outlet strip. Where does the Festool fit? Does it turn on when saw starts if it is...
