Quote from: PDR on September 27, 2020, 15:04:27 pmI think we are starting to see the start of the predicted shortage in balsa as wind-turbine production soaks up the available supplies - balsa is used in end-grain sheets as a core shear layer in wind turbine blades, and they don't have many alternatives.So guard your balsa stocks - the chinese will be sending out ninja balsa-napping squads!!PDR

Quote from: Dave_S on September 27, 2020, 18:38:51 pm......Does this really mean no balsa, or just a hefty price increase? I reckon we can find ways around no balsa with smaller sections of spruce and ply/lite ply for most models.
