RJKIRK...FYI they have indicated they can box 16 2'X4' sheets per box and they will quote boxed and bundled product in minimum and larger order quantities.
Sounds great. Are these sheets going to be paperless and without the waviness of the current Adam's foam board?

That is good news.

I've been lurking on this thread for a while now.

I think we are very lucky to have the individuals on this thread who are willing to do the grunt work necessary to bring something like this to reality.

Thanks guys!

Looking forward to finding out the details, etc.

Dan,
Yes the sheet will be unfaced as they say, no perferations, and specified smooth and flat, cut not folded. Maximum thickness of 6mm with tolerance in thickness driven down.

I am certainly looking forward to making planes from white foam that is not Depron.
