Re: Intro and Question



You can find really thin copper, etc, but I'm not sure tin at a Hobby Lobby.
Look for the yellow tube.

Tin snips would do the trick; so will a pair of good, sharp scissors.  After
cutting the sheet, the scissors would not be helpful for paper!  Happy
experimenting.  jansapp@gte.net
