Help!
Buying Fiberglass In Smaller Quantities

Hello, I'm looking to apply some fiberglass reinfrcement to protect the underside of one of my belly landers. Where can I find fiberglass cloth in smaller quantities for a job like this? I may also do the wing joints as well.

I'm looking for .25 or .75 ounce glass in order for the material to conform to the curves. I don't think anything thicker will conform like I want. I checked Thayercraft as reccomended in another post but their glass is sold in large rolls. I'm not readyto take on a complete glass job just yet.

Thanks for the help!

I have used Thayercraft for years and years. http://www.thayercraft.com/

They sell in almost any quantity... you do not have to buy large rolls. You can get their .75 oz. fabric for about 26 bucks delivered. How can you beat that?

And a word of caution. Never buy folded fiberglass. Always buy rolled material. FOlds and creases damage the cloth.

See if some of your buddies need some cloth and split it up accordingly. I and three others bought a large roll of 3/4 oz cloth and each had about 20 feet by 44 inches wide to play with for the same money as buying a small quantity at the LHS.

It comes in as a small quantity and is folded, they do a couple of different weights, I've not had any problems with it being damaged from being folded.

Great Planes has what you need in several widths. I believe that they go from 1'' up to 4''. It's seam tape/fiberglass strips that you use for seaming joints on wings, fuse ,etc.Tower part # for the 2'' isGPMR1054 $4.79
