  1. Hello Any recommendations for a small-ish high quality "square" to help me cut accurate right angles (e.g. when cutting / scoring small pieces of styrene sheet) - Ideally I would like a "speed square" - something that lines up easily against the site of your cutting board / work surface. - It must have easy to read metric measurement markings. - I need to be accurate to a fraction of a millimeter. Background I need something to help me cut 90 degree angles. I am told a "speed square" is a helpful device as it lets you quickly align with the side of your bench/working surface. It would be helpful if it had measurements on it too. I have one of these but the finish is extremely rough & bumpy absolutely awful. "Swanson NA202 250mm Metric Speed Square" http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Swanson-NA202-250mm-Metric-Speed-Square-with-Instruction-Book-/181712888336? I have tried sanding it down which has improved it but the markings are so large and deep that it makes everything too inaccurate. So far I cant find any model supply websites i.e. What to buy and where to get it? So far (via alternativesite.net) I have tried: (I rather like the look of this thin beam square, except no markings http://www.micromark.com/thin-beam-square,8426.html) http://www.allcomponents.co.uk ==> no result for squares of any sort http://www.ashfordmodel.co.uk ==> No squares of any sort http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk ==> only "Engineers Squares" but they have no measurement markings on them. http://www.craft-products.com ==> no squares... (But this "Mini Mitre Block" looks interesting if I could work out how to use it! http://www.craft-products.com/pb102-mini-mitre-block- is using a saw more accurate than scoring and snapping styrene?) http://www.eileensemporium.com ==> "engineers squares" & "set squares" but they have no measurement markings on them http://www.ema-models.co.uk ==> only "Engineers Squares" but they have no measurement markings on them. http://www.finescale.org.uk/ ==> no result for squares of any sort http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ ==> seems to be kids stuff only http://www.homebase.co.uk ==> limited. No speed squares. http://www.micromark.com ==> USA based not UK. Everything in inches. http://www.modelshop.co.uk ==> no squares with markings http://www.nairnshire-modelling-supplies.co.uk ==> No squares of any sort http://www.scalelink.co.uk ==> no result for squares of any sort http://www.westbourne-model.co.uk ==> no squares, including no speed squares http://www.wizardmodels.co.uk ==> no result for squares of any sort https://www.wonderlandmodels.com ==> Engineers square with no markings. Hard site to search I have been trying to avoid amazon because there is so much of low quality build, and repetition of the exact same stuff designed for other uses... which I dont want! Likewise eBay with the added problem of quality & legal concerns. Any suggestions/tips for precision, small scale working (esp with styrene/ABS sheet)?
  2. I've run out of plastic strips for my diorama and am looking for a supplier who is reputable and can do fast delivery. Some of the items are really small sizes and my LHS doesn't stock 'non-standard' packs. I usually use Plastruct or Evergreen strips. Anyone know of a 'next day' provider? Mike
