    Default Help Finding Trupan

    Hello All,

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to find 5'x12' trupan ultralight MDF? Nowhere local to me can get it.

    If you have a big republic blower you do not need trupan or ULDF.

    Could I just use lighter MDF then?

    We use LDF with our two Feins.
    Works well for most applications.

    What do you think of this? Which one would work best?

    The differences between different ULDF's is quite minimal.
    They all work better than mdf and difficult to tell the difference in practice from each other.
