It may seem strange, but I need some of those little 3/16" rubber bands used on braces. Can anybody assist? I have no trouble purchasing 5000, but I only really want a dozen.

Hi Jerald, it would probably be a lot easier sourcing those bands in your home town of Atlanta, Georgia, USA than from here in NZ

I don't know why Bill but most of the scammer/phishing/spammer types lately have IP addresses in the 'USA'. Their names are slightly off too even by American standards. No doubt using a VPN network to hide the real origins. Another trend I've noticed are the first couple of posts that have no hyperlinks. Still so easy to pick though Big smile. Let's see what Jerald has to say.

Can you share with us how they are used?  As an alternative to using dacron loops or rubber bands I expect?

I'm sure they have a use. I doubt this is a legitimate request, but I've given him the benefit of the doubt  Wink

Ditto ... as you will know the big advantage of using dental bands is that the indicator can be slid back & forward to suit the varying depths of water or flow.
