I used gorilla glue but mine recently fell apart and is now taped together. Well... I have three now :D

Getting the tape on smooth is not easy, I tell you! It's definitely a 2 person job, but by the 3rd one we had it down :lol:

Oh no. Now you tell me, after I've ordered said tape :lol: :lol:

How long did it take for your perspex to arrive? I know it was late on Saturday when I ordered it and it's now Sunday, but I am not a patient person when I want something ;)

Is anyone making metal trays still? Have tried messaging Rattie Angels but had no reply.

I want to say it was pretty quick, where did you order it from?#

ETA I've just looked and apparently we did our order on a Monday and I had the trays in my cage by Thursday of the same week!

cool, hopefully they'll arrive soon. Having said that I'm not sure when I'll get the energy to do anything with them, just started a new job and for this week I'm working 8.30am to 7pm add on two and a half hours travel and that makes for a very long and tiring week. To top it off I'm also working 9 - 12 on Saturday, followed by uni open day!! At least it's only for one week, then I'm just doing 2 1/2 days a week with every other Saturday.

I ordered from sheet plastics too. Apparently they should be arriving tomorrow. I might have time to put them together on Wed pm, if not then they'll be waiting for me when I get back from my weekend away :D

Ooh! Where is the best play to a get an SRS tray? and has anyone got the measurements for a really snug fit? -we will be keeping boys in one half and girls in another, so we want to make sure that it is completely impossible for them to mix.

Cheers!

I would read the thread since the whole thing is detailing places to get trays from :lol:

I've finally got round to ordering a stainless steel SRS tray from Mick in Newcastle (search 'Mick' and you'll find his details in a previous post).

He quoted me £50 for a tray of 895 x 595 x 150mm. I found these measurements on a different forum post, I really hope it will fit well! I measured the gap as 90cm by 60cm but I think deducting 0.5cm makes sense so it can get in. Fingers crossed! I'll post pictures when I get it :)

PS I got a quote of £58 for a galvanised tray of 895 x 595 x 100mm from John Hopewell, inc delivery. So Mick is definitely better value at the moment (it depends on the current price of stainless steel, it was much more expensive last Autumn when I last got a quote).

Did people go for perspex or acrylic? I can't find clear perspex.

ETA google informs me that perspex is a brand name for acrylic :oops:
