Where to buy delrin blocks?

I've got access to a 3-axis machine capable of handling wood and plastics, and I want to try building some stuff out of delrin. However I can't find anywhere that carries blocks big enough to build stuff like shrouds or pump handles. Any ideas?

I've bought from my local Industrial Plastic & Paint before. You could probably find cheaper if you shop around, but they have a branch in Victoria.

ippnet.com

Their website doesnt show acetal any more, but call the store - as far as I know my local still carries abs, uhmw, nylon, acetal (delrin), and a few other machining plastics.

Good to know, I've been meaning to go to IPP for acrylic sheets for the laser cutter anyways so I'll check there.

What's the cost of delrin these days? I've wanted to turn a pen out of one.

I don't remember the exact cost but it's cheap. If you're not in a hurry I have some 3/4" OD round somewhere. I could bring a section to the next meet-up if you'd like.

I got some Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene from Lee Valley. Not what I would call "cheap." At like $40 a 4"x24". But, it's still cheaper than $50 downhill skateboard gloves.

It would require some gluing and probably only pump 1,000,000,000,000,000 times before showing wear. So, you know, it could work.

Mcmaster.com has everything you could want. It may be listed under Acetal (Delrin is a brand name owned by Dupont). There are cheaper websites out there though

That would be awesome! Perfect size, too.
