Hello List members,
For a source of small pieces of G-10 Phenolic try some of the
suppliers for High Power Rocketry. Here is an E-mail address for
Giant Leap Rocketry, GiantLeapRocketry-at-compuserve-dot-com  they will
sell G-10 sheets at reasonable prices. There are several other
suppliers that can be found on the Internet.
