In sorting and reboxing, I measured a bunch of sheets and they seemed pretty consistently between 5.5 and 6mm with only local areas outside that. Adams is working on improving thickness consistency for other uses, so we hope to benefit from that work as well. As you might know, thickness control at the level we like was below the requirements of the major users for fanfold.
OK, thanks. I'll keep an eye on this thread and see how the next batch turns out. If they can get tolerances within a few 10ths of a mm, then this stuff should be OK for my kits. And also looking forward to see if you can get it in 3mm. Not only do I do a lot of kits in 3mm, but a lot of guys use it to "skin" built up models as well.
