Re: Looking for a Material

In the early 80's, we made a lot of parts from Phenolic material, which can be had in many different formulations, depending on what you want to do with it. It is non-metalic but machinable.

this is a good explanation site.

I specifically remember using a lot of the light green and tan material, and we made rocket guidance housings and gimble blocks out of it.
