Frank, not good news. When I last got some I needed over a metre and the bloke at my local WYKO just gave ithe extra to me (people are like that over here). Think a metre was about £18 + Vat then. In the States it's about $6 a foot. Maybe worth it from Lee Valley ($6.50 per ft). Unlikely to attract Vat as it's light and can be wrapped up small. For 4 ft = $26 + $5 for shipping, $31 @ 1.88 = £16.48. I'd do it. Even at $10 for shipping. Email LV from the site, they will confirm total cost before ordering.
