I don't see a weight listed. I would want to know how much that stuff weighs before beginning. Mounting, holding and positioning might be difficult if it's heavy.

They dont list on the website how much this thing weighs. I got another email and they require a minimum order of $50 and charge $50 for packaging. Now I have a second thought if it is worth it to diy.

That's the problem with a lot of industrial materials.

If it were available at retail stores where you could see it and buy a sheet at a time, that would be ideal.

I bought a 22" piece from these guys for my AB BD. I wish I had gone with the genuine AB deal though since there is no finish on the edges and they can't cut a perfect circle.
