Default Crocker Wheeler Bipolar Motor

Looking for RED FIBER insulating board for my bipolar coil restoration.. Mcmaster Carr does not show this material or maybe it goes by another trade name. Looking for 1/8" thickness X 12" X 12" sheet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

McMaster-Carr has the material, but theirs is gray instead of red. The item description is "vulcanized fiber".

I was looking for the same thing several years ago and had to buy the gray. I was able to turn it red by using food dye. It worked out great. Ron

What you might need is electrical grade GPO3 fibreglass.. I've used Rods and C-Channel, but it comes in sheets

Search also for other Garolite composites, might also work for you if you can find red.

I got some from my buddy that is an electrician, they call it fish paper. I think it was a blueish gray.
