Oceanside too thin

Is anyone else experiencing being shorted on the sheet glass coming out of Oceanside? I've had a number of students that have ordered 3mm sheets, but are receiving 2mm.

They make both 2mm and 3mm - sounds like the beef should be with the distributor.

I am aware, but it's all coming from Delphi, and they don't even list these colors as having a thin version. The complaints have already started, but it helps to arm wrestle when you can tell them it's a known problem. Despite other issues with system, this was never one.

x200 white, a bright red, a teal, and I believe a black; don't have all the numbers off the top of my head on those, but can probably get them. It's the students colors, and it's already causing significant problems because of the types of projects they do.

Other two offenders were Red Opalized X25072 and Lilac Opal X24074, both purchased within the past year, neither are available as a thin from Delphi. The 6mm rule applies to a full fuse, and this discrepancy really starts to mess with things.

Shawn- This may be a work-around for their 4-5mm projects. Try fusing at a lower temp (1450ish) and holding longer there.
Or add another layer. Or use Bullseye.

Unfortunately that's not really gonna work.

The person that's been the unfortunate victim has been doing edge stack projects, and it throws off the whole design. Some of the other projects were relying on a single layer of 3mm pulling in and 4mm would really throw things off. They really shouldn't have to pay twice for the material because the mfg is wrong or they're trying to pull a fast one. I'm amazed that the distributor isn't aware and doing something about it, the size difference is readily apparent for anyone that's handled sheet glass for any amount of time.

They're also set on using 96 for one reason or another, I usually buy 90.

The Delphi website is a pain......most of their colors do not even specify a thickness - The only one I saw that was stated to be 3mm was the white opal x200.

Well Sys96 is going to just barely kinda sorta going to fit the 96. It's not going to fit bullseye 90. The last thing we need now is more incompatible glasses made by a single source manufacturer.

Not going to defend the website, but since the industry standard has been 3mm for some time, unless it is listed as thin or 2mm the expectation should be 3.

By 96 I mean "in name only". System and oceanside are their glasses of choice.

I tend to think that schools really need to own a strainoptics polarimeter. I know it's expensive. It's a fundamental tool. Learn to make Hagy seals. You really won't regret it.

It's still crazy to base businesses and educational endeavors on single source supply chains. What happens when Oceanside ceases to be or they have a fire or who knows what. don't base your livelihood on a single supplier Unless you own part of that operation. they could care less about a customer or two. Remember we are capitalists and all we care about is making $

Just buy a Blanchard and grind it all down. This isn't hard. ( you'll need a bigger room)
