so 32 disposable chip brushes, and 100 latex gloves arent worth your $15?

the other stuff is for people who dont wanna spend money on tools they will use once or twice. :p:

US Composites is nice if you live close, the shipping would cost almost as much as the resin for me. I found a local fiberglass supplier who sells standard lay up resin for $22 gallon out the door with free MEKP (you have to buy at least a gallon for the free activator). My local supplier also sold the 3/4 chop matte for cheaper than USC could.

$22 a gallon out the door is still cheaper locally in Tucson, Arizona...sorry. And he sells his 5 gallon pails for $92.00 out the door, you can do the math. Plus the activator is free. Thats why I stated that it depends on where you live if its cheaper to get it locally rather than order it in. The one thing that I cant get locally is the higher grade cloth.

i think it is good info, but i dont think it should be sticky'd, prices and item availability change all the time.

No, its an actual fiberglass supplier that also sells mold plastics and polymers. When you buy from him, he pours the gallon from 55 gallon drums he has on stands. I would imagine that he sells resin to boat shops though, as he has 5 grades of resins he sells, I just needed a standard layup resin, nothing fancy, just bottom dollar. I imagine Phoenix should have the same. I found him by just doing a www.dex.com search for Fiberglass Materials/Suppliers

I like the idea of a Sticky providing links to materials, perhaps not this one since its all "*****d" up now. (Me taking some of the blame of course)...but maybe a MOD (Acidburn?) can create a list of all online material sites without prices, just the mainpage links.

Well what started out as a good thread turned to crap quickly.

All that non-tool stuff I get from Harbour Frieght also. Tools I already have. But your 90 degree ratchet screwdriver you listed, might I suggest a SkewDriver.
http://www.pretooling.com.au/images/sdimg1.gif
http://www.pretooling.com.au/images/sdimg2.gif http://www.pretooling.com.au/images/sdimg0.gif
The SkewDriver is the original bevel-gear
drive tool, based on a patented offset
screwdriver design. Using the rotary action
of a straight screwdriver through precision
hardened bevel gears, the SkewDriver gets
into those hard to reach places where regular
drivers can't fit. It replaces ordinary
finger-ratchets,stubby screwdrivers, and awkward
S-bend offsets to speed work time and improve
effeciency, solving those impossible access problems.

Heavy duty die-cast
construction with hardened gears and rings.

Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty.


Other than that, I need to get resin cheaper myself. :furious:
