Hi,

Do you ever try to buy "flat" board material? I believe the picture below fits well into the Rogues Gallery? I'd sack the person responsible then sack all the bosses for allowing this to happen?

Unfortunately I see lots of such material abuse. This picture lifted from eBay.

Kind regards, Col.

Not enough battens there. There should be at least seven battens supporting that.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies. I've seen such boards stacked in racks where the racks have only steel brackets under the boards causing the same damage; as adonis states they must be right because they are "specialists" but specialists in what; certainly not material storage? I think I'll be cheeky and send the thread link to this supplier; I wonder if it will have any effect? This sort of thing doesn't give the board manufacturer a good name.

Kind regards, Col.

Not necessarily Steve. This is how we stacked 6mm MDF we made at Caberboard over in Stirling. It was fine with seven battens and well supported.

The picture states it's 18mm MDF but it looks like 6mm. 18mm MDF wouldn't warp like that.

Noticed the boards in our local Wickes are only supported in two places on racks, most of the bards seemed to be coping well enough but the 6mm and 10mm were sagging badly :?

Might not be rogue, but darn if that is not a great waste of some quality materials. So now what, you can only toss that out. I would wager that whoever made that mistake is currently looking for another job – because I could not have that in my shop anywhere!

Hi,

Seven battens I'm sure would be OK Argyll as you state and even with seven battens it would be best to have the battens in line one stacked above the one below as the pile rises to give maximum support.

I never buy board material from either Wickes or B&Q wrinx but then I still have a choice of timber yards nearby. The last time I visited Walker Timber in Huddersfield I wanted some 6mm ply and as it was cut to fit into the car the ply delaminated badly on the saw; I've not been back since. Generally I think modern plywood to be rubbish.

Well said DT; I'd sack the bosses as well and the fool who was stupid enough to post this picture on eBay? Putting a sheet of this rubbish through a table saw would be lethal? Perhaps some DIY'ers will buy it thinking it to be a bargain?

Kind regards, Col.
