Planning to do a little remedial work on a new-to-me XT10. I need a small piece of FRP wall board (24” square?) for azimuth and small strips of laminate for altitude. I still have some Teflon left over from my first Dob build. But sadly I used all of the Ebony Star in my supply. 

 

I can buy full sheets of FRP for a reasonable price at a big box, but it is way more than I need and will be a PITA to transport. 

 

So if someone has scraps of *-42 laminate and FRP, I would like to buy them from you. 

 

Thanks.

Can't help with FRP but go to any company that makes laminate benchtops and you can buy scraps of laminate. If it's anything like the company I work for they'll give you some free. Unfortunately I'm too far from you to be worth sending you some.

Thanks, Dave. I’ve had some success with that approach in the past. The difficulty is in locating pieces of laminate with the right texture in among the scraps!

Update:  I went ahead and bought a full sheet of FRP. After completing my project I expect to have several 2 ft square pieces available to offer to the next guy in this situation lol.gif
