Depron or what

I know it has been passed around before but I have quite a few electric items and would like to use some of them. Where can somebody purchase this stuff reasonably. OK maybe not reasonably but I have not seen any and I don't get to a hobby shop very often as in Lethbridge there is none.
Keep the shiny side up and the wheels down

Re: Depron or what
Try checking some of the Dollarama Stores and see if they have any "Readi-board" foam sheets there. It's about 5mm thick and has a very thin paper on either side.
To remove the paper, put the sheet or two in a garbage bag, add some rubbing alcohol (95% works best, but 70% will as well), shake it around until you feel that the sheets are well covered, then leave it for about a 1/2 hr. When you come back the paper should lift off very easily without leaving any residue.
Have a read through this thread:
I have found it to be more flexible than true depron, so it depends on what you are building as to how well it will work. I still prefer to use the real stuff for wings and such, but the Readi-board is good for sheeting and such.
Safety Precautions: Do not touch the rolling airscrew in order not to be hurt!
I'd like to offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals!
