"In 1729 Stephen Gray made the discovery of the conducting and non-conducting power of different substances. Gray found that by using woven silk served as an excellent insulator. Some years later it was found that the paper industry could provide what was equivalent to woven silk. Later it was discovered that if the paper was saturated with fish oil its ability as an insulator was much improved particularly when used in harsh environments and high voltages."

Been a busy boy tonight! :p I now have a blister on my thumb and blunt pair of scissors! :eek: F*** me, this stuff is tough! o_O

So, starting off with big parcel:



We find two sheets of 0.4mm x 690mm x 3m fishpaper:



Roll it out:



Cut it in half lengthways to make four 345mm by 3m strips:





Start thinking you're clever by getting out your guillotine only to discover it's 25mm to narrow:



Back to basics... mark it up into 25cm sections with a ruler and getting cutting with your best office scissors:



And end up with neat stack of forty-eight 250mm x 345mm sheets:



Getting too late tonight but I'll be contacting each of you by PM in the order of allocation to arrange payment and get your address etc. Will try to get you all done tomorrow!

:clap:

@newdos added to the list for 1 sheet. Kev - fishpaper gets used all over pinball machines. In leaf switches, next to coils, on the back of playfield mechanisms. Anywhere a thin electrical insulation layer or cover is required.

Cheers Peter

Sent you £1 extra and would encourage others to do similar, there is a lot of work involved in doing a group buy. I know £1 isnt much but if a few people add an extra £1 it shoul at least pay for Peters Fish paper.

Cheers
Ian

Thanks, Ian. It's really no problem. All part of the community, etc, etc. Plus it was the only way I was going to get myself some fishpaper at a reasonable price. No way was I paying £15 for a piece of paper that cost about a quid!

Great idea Ian and I am ashamed to say I forgot to do it when I got to PayPal.
I owe you a beer or a favour.

Sorry, everyone. Slight delay on the packaging pipeline. I was hoping to spend this evening wrapping and addressing for all those who've paid, but I've just discovered I need to make a costume for World Book Day tomorrow for my daughter!

She wants to go as Astrid from the How To Train Your Dragon films, so I'm getting busy with cardboard, scissors and glue...

Normal service will resume shortly :p

She got the giggles 'cos I told her to suck in her tummy! She's got way more attitude than needed for a 6-year old ;) Gets it from her mother...

Almost all the other girls in her class either went as Wenda (from Where's Wally?) or a Disney Princess. Not my daughter. Princesses have a very low axe quota. Originally she wanted to go as TANK GIRL but I pointed out that she wasn't old enough to read the books, they're for grown ups. The only Disney Princess she likes is Rapunzel because she knows how to use a frying pan. And I ain't talking about making pancakes... that's a man's job (mine) :D

Got address from @newdos and payment from @elrikos so their fishpaper will go in the post today along with everyone else's who's paid.

Remember it's going 2nd Class Large Letter so don't expect it much before Tuesday or Wednesday!
