Hdp or hdpe and suppliers

4 posts in this topic

I am building a 8x12 skid house actually just ordered all of the aluminum today and for sure want the three 6" runners running on hdp or hdpe. Question is where the heck do you buy it from and typically how thick are you going with it.

The house will stay at my cottage in northern wisc so traveling over parking lots or over roads is not an issue. 


Thanks much

Cope Plastics, Seelye plastics are both in Twin Cities and can ship up to 8' long they look just as close as anyone to you.  1/2" thick should be fine.

The Menards I've been in have 4'x8' sheets of black 1/4" HDPE on the rack already, and you can pretty quickly order in other thicknesses and another color (white I think).  Easy for you to check out locally as I know you have a Menards in Rhinelander.

I wanted to basically find a 24" x 12 foot roll of the stuff or something close to minimize the joints on the skis, I would roll it up and basically just cut it into 3rds and either rivit or bolt it on to the 6" aluminum plate on each of the 3 skis.  I know it's got to be out there, because the mfg's are not charging that much for the stuff as an add on if you buy a house from them, i think it's an extra 300 or so which I would gladly pay.  I will keep checking, thanks for the input.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
