Harold Holland has some surplus teflon strips for spatulas:
A small number of teflon strips (1/8" x 1" x 10") are available for sale. These strips can be easily hand-sanded into spatulas for a variety of conservation applications. For example, when mechanical separation of components is required, a teflon spatula is often superior to a bone folder or steel spatula.
Price: $10 + $2 for postage and handling. Harold Holland, 14 Tamarack Terr., Fredericton, NB, Canada E3B 2S3.
