Gaffer Grey G055 Rod

Hi All

Long shot as I know it is in short supply but we are desperate for about 5-6 rods of this colour....Don't suppose anyone knows anyone with some they would be willing to sell as we have a job that needs to be made by Mid Jan in this colour....

Cheers

Mark

Jim Myers at East Bay batch still seems to have quite number of rod colors in Oakland California. Just google East Bay Batch.

Another option is Spruce Pine Batch Co. One of their best kept secrets is that they stock Gaffer color rods- no frits though. Scott Benefield had told me that the European supplier he normally goes to is pretty low on stock. Hopefully Gaffer will be supplying color again by late January.

If you do order Mark, you might check in with Scott Benefield in N. Ireland to see if you could combine shipping with him. He was after the enamel white but not urgently. Shipping to the Great British Empire and Baking Show is expensive.

I don't know if you've tried this but I looked at the Gaffer website and the depiction of the color there looks a lot like Reichenbach Tourmaline. If you're trying to exactly match something already existing that may not be any help but it's just a suggestion.
