    That sounds tempting.

    Can you let me know how this would work, rate per sheet or per cut or whatever etc.

    Perhaps by PM.

    This need will be going on for months.

    In terms of white melamine-faced particleboard, is there any difference between MR and HMR, or is it just a marketing thing?
