    Is there a good source for raw sheets of the black "fiber" material used in a lot of low power centering rings by Fliskits, BMS, and others? And does anyone know if this material plays nicely with laser cutters?

    Not quite the same stuff, but I've used mat board for framing pictures. I can't address the laser cutter, but since this stuff is more of a heavy cardboard I would imagine it should cut readily.

    50 point chip board is what I have used in the past and its available at craft stores. Its harder and stiffer than mat board, and should cut fairly well on a laser.

    The material is called Letramax, it is available as a mounting board at art supply stores.

    Knew it had to have some kind of proper brand name that'd make it easier to find. Thanks!
