Any Australians here know where to get delrin locally? Need pieces up to 2" diameter, Or alternatively - anyone found a non raw material type source?

Thanks all

Evan, how on EARTH did you find Barraba Plastics? That is a tiny little back town about 90km from here...

Seems like you know how to find stuff better than I do. I just had a quick look in the phone book (who uses them any more?) and Barraba Plastics isn't listed, however Coffs Harbour has 'The Plastics Factory' with sheet, rod and tube - they have acrylic, nylon, delrin, ptfe, lexan, perspex, pvc, foam blah blah, - www.plasticsfactory.com.au (http://www.plasticsfactory.com.au) can't comment on their service yet though, will give them a call later today...

Regards

just curious why you need delrin, I was looking to build some prototypes and thought delrin was the key but was informed of the very high expense and was directed to a type of polymer which is durable millable and much cheaper then delrin. Just for your info if it helps
