[Source] Thick butter board


#1

Does anyone know where I can purchase some larger and thicker pieces
of butter board? I need them to be about the size of a bracelet mold.

I would like to buy a quantity of them or a large thick sheet.

Thanks
David

Try Goldenwest Manufacturing Co. in Grass Valley CA They probably…

A. Have what you need in stock
B. Can custom make what you need
C. Instruct and sell you the materials to make your own block of
butterboard aka polyethelene filled urethane resin.

It’s amazing what you find when you “dogpile” I am not familiar with
the product named so the first search had several art uses similar to
Matt board

Then I had an “AH-HA!” moment and found these. (I have them
occasionally but they don’t hurt)

Butterboard - a high density urethane foam product - is made by
Golden West Manufacturing of Cedar Ridge California. It cuts “like
butter” with CNC tools, hence the name. Go to
http://www.goldenwestmfg.com and click “Specials”; they will give you
a deal on a 12" x 12" piece 1.65" thick. It’s a castable product, so
if you need a special shape, just ask them and they can probably make
it for you. If you’re making especially detailed jewelry-type
patterns, ask them about their R1 resin, which they recommend for
that sort of thing. It’s about 100 lbs/cubic ft. density, which is
about as heavy as these products get.
