Hi Paul
Like you I always try to save a buck or two when it comes to buying stock.
I tried to do the same thing and buy the same plastic that OakPark sales and I ran into the price block.
You can find it in 1/4",3/8",1/2" and up ,in 4ft x 4ft or 4ft x 8ft but it's NOT cheap and if you don't mind dropping 95.oo to 300.oo per.+ go for it.
That why I would stick with the OakPark jigs for now.
You can find a outlet for the plastic in the yellow pages (under Plastic )
My son runs a shop for Car-Toys and they use it from time to time and once I got a small left over for 25.oo bucks , it was 1/2" x 18" x 21" ,so to say you may want to drop a dime and call around in your town you may find some also.
The clear plastic is Not slick like the milk white and the milk white machines well.

Good Luck
Bj :)

Hi Paul
Unlike you I am a cheap SOB and I like to make my own jigs too, like you.
Maybe you and I should get some and then cut to order and sell them on the Net.
I'm sure you would get many orders, bulk is the key and I'm sure you know that.
Not to step on OakPark sales ,but just sell the blank stock only, for jigs.
Maybe ask Mark and Bob and Rick if you can put a link on the Router Forum.
Just a thought.

ô¿ô DEX on the http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/win2000

Have a good one
Bj :)

Just some feed back

I order one of the 4 1/2lb., I got it today
Buyer beware thing....you get what you pay for.... :)
I got one that was 3/4" thick x 4" wide x 24" long and one 1/4" thick x 3" wide x 22" long and one that is 1/4" thick x 1 1/4" wide and 30" long and the other one was just junk cut off,to small to use for anything..spacers maybe.

I guess eBay maybe the place to get what you want :)
Not the pig in a poke plastic bag thing..
