  • Tin Foil Source

    Here's a question I ask from time to time when the thought occurs, and since I have yet to ask it here, I thought I'd give it a shot:

    Anybody out there know where I can get some REAL tin foil?

    Yes, try a Dental suppliers they have usually small rolls in a container the size of a small medicine tub.
    Approx. say ten feet by four inches when unrolled if in trouble email me and I will make enquiries here for you. good luck in the meantime. Alistair

          Alistair - I didn't realize that dentists use the stuff. I see from a quick dental Google that it's commonly available from dental supply houses - THANKS!

          DT - No, so far the voices appear to have bodies nearby that are producing them, so I think I'm OK, at least for now. In case you're wondering, tin foil is the material of choice for conforming to delicate surfaces for molding with plaster of paris and/or other compounds. It turns out that even the thinnest aluminum foil is a bit stiff when it comes to really laying down smoothly on a super delicate surface.

          Here's what I'm up to:

            Yes it's used mainly to block out undercut areas whan making dentures and relief chambers in upper dentures for people who have a rather bulbous area in the palate known as a Torus Palatinus. These are discarded before the appliance ever reaches the patient so it is never put into the mouth kind regards glad I could help. Alistair

                If that's anything like a duck billed palatinus,I wouldn't want one in my mouth either.
