    My one of my plates is pulling away from the outter edges pretty bad. Purple/green. Kinda sharp.
    Looking for new replacements should anyone have some.

    The one panel is lifted on 3 sides. The side at the top appears to still be smooth. The other side is intact except for a small lift at one corner.
    Thanks for taking a look, Jinx'd.

    :anyone:
    I searched for 2hrs and finally found that the newer R150R and R233 have plates that are interchangeable with the R150.
    @Heaven Gifts Has 2 pair - resin and a skull. With their 35% off sale they come to $7.01 ea. What the heck. I'm going to purchase both.
    Oh. The U.K. sells plates but can't ship to the U.S.
    However, I'm still looking for Abalone.

    Gluing it down is the problem. The abalone sheet edges sit rounded onto the plate. for a smooth, corner feel. Mine can be done but with a really strong adhesive and a bench press or vices or the like. I'm too impatient to try it and hubby would probably break it. (Think Herman Munster...lol)

    Sounds like you have the same problem with yours?
    ----------------------------------------
    Let's move this discussion to a convo. I'd like to keep the thread open just in case someone comes up with abalone panels.
