New casting supplier in La Grange

Reynolds Advanced Materials acquired PSH Industries of La Grange, IL – or so says their advertising flier.  ReynoldsAM carries Smooth-On products, as well as a variety of other casting materials.  

Cool, a local distributor that I can drive to & pick up supplies.  My last resin shipment cost me $14.00 S/H, and that’s only going to get worse as gas prices keep climbing.   Even better, the on line catalog lists a full range of Gypsum products – excellent news, since my last supplier stopped selling Hydrostone. 

Gave the place a call and it all went down hill from there.  The business is still very much a work in progress.  They do have Smooth On ready to sell, but not much else – no casting plaster.  Office hours are 8:30am to 5:00pm M-F, with a show case opening some time in the next few months.  Not the most convenient, but I could manage to drop in if I took of from work early.

Over all, a very disapointing impression after the very exciting web site/catalog & the expense of buying my name & address from smooth on.  I’ll hang on for a few months and see if they get their act together.
