Measure Twice, Cut Once

Once we cut a stock size piece, we can't ever sell it as full size piece again. All cuts are nominal. So, PLEASE MEASURE CAREFULLY, and DOUBLE CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS BEFORE YOU ORDER. The old adage is espcially true here: measure twice, cut once. WE do it before we cut your piece, and YOU should do it before you order.

Using a measuring tape

Here's a little refresher on how to use a measure tape. First, let's talk about the increments. We'll assume that you're using the English or Imperial system of feet and inches. Extend your tape measure several inches and find the large 1 and 2. On most English measuring tape, the smallest increment is 1/16 of an inch. This means that there are 16 equally spaced marks between 1 and 2 inches on the tape. When measuring, count how many of these marks you are beyond the nearest inch. If your piece measures 7 inches and other 8 marks, that is 8/16 (1/2) for a total of 7-1/2".Let's say you were taking your second measurement (see below) and this time you counted 9 marks past the 7 inch mark. That means your piece is actually 7-9/16" long.

The clip on the end of my measuring tape slides back and forth. Is it broken?

No! The sliding clip on the end of the tape is designed for two different types of measurements. When you take an outside measurement (where you hand the clip of the tape over an edge), the clip slides out a little to account for the thickness. When you take an inside measurement (push the clip up against a surface), the clip slides in, again accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts so, either way, you get an accurate measurement.

POLNM - Overview

Machine grade Polycarbonate engineering plate features extremely high impact strength, outstanding dimensional stability, and the lowest internal stress and inclusion levels when compared to any other products in its class. The lower internal stress and reduced inclusion levels of this polycarbonate will save you time and money by reducing your fabrication process. Machine grade Polycarbonate is an excellent material for prototyping parts before injection molding.

Polycarbonate is a versatile, tough plastic used for a variety of applications, from bulletproof windows to compact disks (CDs). It comes in transparent and opaque varieties. The main advantage of polycarbonate over other types of plastic is unbeatable strength combined with light weight. Polycarbonate is just one-third the weight of acrylic, or one-sixth as heavy as glass, and is nearly unbreakable. Bullet-resistant variations are available and are used in windows and enclosures usually seen inside banks are often made of polycarbonate.
