I started out this morning making some WBW rosettes but alas The abs material that I've been using has gone off with age or heat or something.
co's it has gone brittle...I normally cut strips off a sheet with a card cutter but they come off twisted and I have to straighten em out..So I have decided this time to buy some purfling material ready cut into strips..After searching online for 2 hours I slill havn't sourced a supplier in the UK ....The size i'm after is 2 or 3 mm X 0.5mm in black and white.
Stewmac has it in stock..but I would rather deal with someone in the UK.

I've used tonetech for wbw and bwb purfling in UK and it seems decent stuff but its 1.5mm thick not 2mm.

I've never seen any 0.5 mm BW in the UK Ken, but if you can stretch to 1 mm width then item BW5 from Smallwonder ... http://www.smallwonder-music.co.uk/shop/Banding-and-Purfling/Black-White-Black-Purfling/p-101-489/

David Dyke also lists item B22 which is BW 2.5 x 0.9 mm.

However if you've been searching for 2 hours I guess you'll have found them :)

I found some in Spain in the end...and I ordered some from Stewmac as well...so I'll hang fire and find some other thing to do to pass time until it arrives ;)
