Hey everyone! I wanted to let all of the Socal based members know about a great plastic supplier in Santa Monica called Hastings. Hastings sells a wide variety of plastics and plastic related products. They have a very knowledgeable staff and do great work. I recently purchased a 12"x15" piece of 1/2” acrylic from them for $19.55. I ordered the piece at 5:00 PM and it was ready to be picked up the next day at 9:00 AM. I highly recommend them. You can also check them out online at http://www.hastingsplastics.com. Hope someone finds this post useful.
*EDIT* They will also polish edges for those FTIR folks out there that don’t want to mess around with it.
