Topic tags/keywords: question lathe turning

Having no luck in finding suppliers for Acrylic turning rods. I can find lots of vendors that sell pen blank size blanks but no vendors selling longer blanks. I believe that I want “cast” acrylic for lathe turning. I want the multi-colored rods with swirled colors like the pen blanks. I need them to be 8 or so inches long, and not too costly. The thickness can be 3/4 or better at 1 inch. Anyone out there be able to share a vendor with me? Thanks for your help. Want to make some hairsticks our of this stuff. Any help appreciated.

Most major cities have one or more plastics vendors. Plastics are used
in a lot of industries. If you’re geographically isolated, you may have to
mail-order, but believe me, this stuff is not hard to get in a lot of places.

4.22 a foot for 1” material, apparently only sold in 4ft pieces. By my standards thats cheap.
