Hi Daryl

Don't know where you are from but try a larger city which supports one
or two plastics distributors, i.e., Ain Plastics, Cadillac Plastics,
etc. These guys usually cut plastics for large customers and they
usually keep the scraps. I use linen filled material and also have one
rotor made of paper filled material. I check the distributors who are
located here occasionally just to see if any good stuff is lying around.

Good hunting
