3-Pound to 7-Pound Density
Each sheet (1/16″ – 24″x3″) is weighed individually, the weight in grams written on the upper left corner, and then sorted according to the chart below. This balsa is clear. Sheets with holes has been removed (you will not receive holes). Some sheets may be warped and some may have 1″ – 2″ cracks in the end (less than 10% of stock). No effort will be made to select outside of the Density options. Do not request C-grain – I do not receive C-grain, although you might receive a sheet with B-C grain in your selection. All is A- or B-grain.
Shipping will be in a 24″ box. IT IS PREFERRED THAT YOU DO NOT ORDER THIS DELICATE BALSA WITH OTHER PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY HEAVY PRODUCTS LIKE RUBBER. IF YOU DO, AND DAMAGE TO THE BALSA OCCURS IN SHIPMENT, THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
|NOTE: As of APRIL 2022, the USPS is charging extra for any package OVER 22″ long. There will be a $5 surcharge for ordering this balsa.
I prefer not to ship single sheets. Therefore the single sheet price will be extremely high compared to multiple sheets. Basically, five or more sheets (any density combination) will have the “normal” price, and the single sheet price will reflect a packaging surcharge (roughly 2x the “normal” price per sheet).
IF YOU ORDER 5 OR MORE SHEETS OF ANY COMBINATION OF DENSITIES YOU WILL RECEIVE THE “NORMAL” PRICE.
“Normal” Pricing per sheet (orders with less than 5 sheets of any density combination will be double the price per sheet):
- 3# – $4.00 each (when available)
- 4# – $3.00 each (when available)
- 5# – $2.50 each
- 6# – $2.50 each
- 7# – $2.00 each
My supplier assures me that there is plenty more available.
