The thirty sheets of 0.8mm x 100mm balsa were all of good uniform grain and appearance. I was surprised by the weight variation which ranged from 6.2gm per sheet right up to 19.3gm which is 3 times heavier.
Hi Greg - thanks for your accurate description of the weight variation of the 30 balsa sheets. 30 sheets could very well be cut from 30 different balsa trees so we do get a lot of variation between all thicknesses/sizes of products unfortunately. I hope this does not curtail your project in any way though. All the best - Peter
My order was sent 23 days ago using couriers please. It still hasn’t arrived.
Hi Melaney. So sorry to hear of your bad experience with delivery times over Christmas :(
We constantly review our relationships with courier services for this very reason but it's such a shame that you had to wear the brunt of poor service. Please accept our apologies. - Peter
In all the years I have been using Balsa Central's products, I am yet to receive an unusable piece. That includes their budget balsa packs. As a prolific scratch builder trying to sate the appetite of a gluttonous laser cutter - it matters. Bought sight unseen, the quality exceeds what I used to hand pick from the LHS before they became extinct. Communication is excellent, pricing is competitive. The freight to my door is quicker from interstate, than what local deliveries provide. Thanks for keeping the grass roots level of our hobby alive!
We're all about grass roots hobby David and put a lot of emphasis on making sure what you order is what you get for the best value possible. I really appreciate your feedback and your time! - Peter
