    My last set of armor was bucket armor and now that I look at it, its kinda cheesy. I now want to make all my armor out of sintra and do a good job at it. Where is the cheapest place on the net to buy it and how much of it and how thick do I need? I remind you I want to make, chest, gauntlets, knees, and shoulders. Thanks!

    Best thing is to do a search...Ther eis thread somewhere that says you can get it from US plastics and then says exactly what they call it.

    Here's a tip: white sintra is cheaper than black and is actually a smidge easier to cut.

    Say, I'm doing this awfully quick, so what's the decimal of 1/8th inch. USPlactics doesn't do the fraction, they like to make thinking difficult.

    Or about 3.2mm (for those of us who work in metric).
