I am working with a company that buys large quantities of UHMW in an attempt to help out him and all of us. I should know something by early next week. The price of UHMW is going up 10% in February.
I hate to start talking prices yet but we should see, one way or the other, a substantial savings on material. If any of you are pricing material for comparisons, keep in mind that the "UV" label adds 15% to 20% to the price. Color adds more. If the material does not say UV resistant, such as TIVAR 1000 UV, then it is not the same thing. All UHMW has some inhibitor, but that is different than the UV label.
As we get closer, please remember, I am doing this so I too get a cheaper sled. I expect anybody involved to pay quickly and be ready for things to happen on short notice. I will not be your bank.
There will be some math involved, which means I need to order a specific quantity. The sheets are cut out of blocks, and each block has a maximum number of sheets available. Therefore, people who get on the list and pay first are the ones that are assured material. If I get down the llist and have an odd number, then those people will not receive any UHMW. I may also be limited by the company transporting the material.
For now, respond to this thread and/or PM me with your contact information if you are interested.
