Wink Cheap MDF offcuts in Melbourne

To all Aussies in Melbourne.

AllBoards in Trawalla Ave in Thomastown, near DaltonRd/Western ring road.
They are so busy that no cut to order service until further notice, to make up for that loss they have MASSIVE quantities of 12.16/19mm MDF offcuts up to 450 X 1200 $1- each , and if you buy a couple of big sheets smaller offcuts negotiable. I thought I'd pas this titbit of information on to the Melbourne DIY community as I hate to think of all this good panelling being dumped, but he boss here said if it isn't sold bt Thursday of each week it goes in the rubbish.
Ok it isnt that thick but glue 2 layers together and you have a respectable baffle for a few dollars

No they only open Mon - Friday, but I'm happy to get then for you and hold them here until the week-end.
How-ever they have sold all the thicker sheets and only 12mm left this week, I went this morning and missed out, I did buy 30 sheets of 12mm, if I glue them together i get 24mm and the benefits of the glue layer so I,m not unhappy.
How much do you want to spend?? i can transfer some money to my cash account and keep them here for weekend pick-up.
The sheets I bought this morning are 445 X 1810mm and 12mm thick, tall enough and almost wide enough for the next project, if I use slightly deeper wings they will be wide enough to use. let me know quickly as its POETS day

Hi gainphile, just had a thought, this business has head office in Moorabin, give them a call and see what they have in stock ( off-cut wise ) in Moorabin, thats a lot closer to you

There is an AllBoard outlet in Bayswater as well.

I get most of my supplies from there including MDF, Plywood, and others.

I may be confusing 2 different suppliers here, does the All-boards outlet in Bayswater have lots of large panel off-cuts?
i have enough now for 10 baffles so happy to share if anybody wants to pickup here, $1 each
