  • Good (cheap) source for Delrin?

    Looking for 2" or 2-1/2" Delrin rod. Mcmaster-Carr seems rather pricey. Anyone here know someplace better?

    Delrin

    Check Boedecker Plastics in Shiner, Texas.

                  I just received an order from surplusdealdude on eBay. He sells mostly offcuts but has a decent variety, and ships from both sides of the border which is a big plus for Canadians.

                    I get a box of drops from fleabay all the time. I have had good luck and all the pieces are good usable size. If you need a longer length there are several sellers that sell it by the foot.

                      Wow, thanks. I never even thought of looking for drops. I'm making frame sliders for motorcycles, so they're a maximum of maybe 8".

                        Grewe Plastics, Newark, NJ: http://greweco.com/ They sometimes have usuable drops as well as new material. Must be something similar in Philly.

                          check out some of the local plastic places and see if they will let you dumpster dive. Check out the score in the back of my pick up from a dumpster dive at my local plastic place. This was all UHMW.

                            I found 7/8 Delrin in 3 foot lengths at the best price from aircraftspruce.com.

                            www.aircraftspruce.com

                            Doing a search just now indicated that DrillSpot is competitive, also.
