Some of the plastics companies have, as an accommodation to the homecraft trade, made arrangements to carry a limited variety of findings and supplies, buying by the gross and selling by the dozen, but in the main all such supplies, buying by the gress and selling by the dozen, but in the main all such are or should be purchased direct. As a rule, the ingenious craftsman usually finds out where to buy whatever it is he wants to make whatever his mind is on at the moment, but this has proven to be a rather difficult proposition with supplies for working plastics. For this reason a list is appended hereto, with the names and addresses of a few firms in each line who will accept small orders to be filled from stock. They do not publish catalogs or furnish samples as a rule, for the reasons outlined previously in this chapter, but all of the findings and supplies illustrated or mentioned in this book can be obtained from one or more of these firms. With them also, serving the homecraft trade is an experiment, and we bespeak your consideration in dealing with them. Included also in this list are the names of leading manufacturers of the various types of homecraft and professional machines referred to:
