Subject: Silver foil for Oddy tests

Silver foil for Oddy tests

From: W. T. Chase <tchase4921>
Date: Sunday, October 4, 1998
Another source of silver sheet is

    Goodfellow Corporation
    800 Lancaster Avenue
    Berwyn, PA 19312-1780

They supply various thicknesses of 99.95+% silver foil.  Their
AG000350 is 0.1mm thick.  1 piece, 50 X 50 mm, costs $141.00, but if
you order 50, the price is $412.  That's $20.60/sheet, which beats
Aaron Alpha.

Incidentally, I don't think that the sheet thickness is going to
matter much in these tests, but the purity may.  I liked Will
Jeffers's questions and would be interested to hear more about the
purity issue.
