My order for one pkg. of 1/2" cork arrived very speedily. While the package was a bit banged up the cork was not. My unusual application is that of a "building board" for model airplanes where the requirement is for the "board" to take and hold straight pins well. While I not yet actually built a model this way preliminary "pinning tests" strongly suggest this product will work out well. I have 'way more material than I need so I will be sharing it with some model building friends. It will take a while but I expect a collective evaluation for this application.
