Does anyone know where I can get sheets of thin plastic. I want to make my own crankbait lips. Is there a place like home depot or hobby shop that has them or do I have to order them online? And if so what online stores do people here recommend?

Have never ordered from this place but their prices seem reasonable. Order Plastic Polycarbonate Sheet in Small Quantities at OnlineMetals.com

Also, you can get a 12" x 12" piece of 3/32 Lexan brand polycarbonate at home Depot.

If you are looking for circuit board, http://www.mcmaster....-sheets/=1r38qg has it but from what I have read here in the TU posts, it is not the white colored board.

Hope this helps.

McMaster-Carr sells both polycarbonate and circuitboard at good prices. Also a good selection of wire. Check them out at mcmaster.com Their G-10 circuitboard is an ugly (IMO) yellow. The G-11 is a more pleasant light green, but costs more.

Stear clear of acrylic sheet, it is brittle in cold water apparently. No cold water in my neighborhood though.
