I don’t where every club gets their # 4 glass beads ,but I have found a supplier that is local.
The company is GCR ( Glavin Coating & Refinishing) 72823 Parr Line , R.R.#1 Zurich,Ontario N0M2T0
Attention Mike Glavin 519-236-4022 e-mail mglavin
They are located between Hensal and Zurich

GCR do sandblasting and orders a transport load of beads per month in the summer, they do not use the # 4 glass beads used for shuffling but can order them.
The cost of a 50 lb bag of beads is $ 35.00 cash
This summer I ordered 6 bags and had them within 2 days

Hope this helps anyone wanting beads

Thanks Eric, for sharing your helpful information. That seems a good price.

Bill Boyes comments:
Zurich is near the shores of Lake Huron, so those in central or eastern Ontario might try a more local coating and refinishing business. As well, your own municipality may be using beads in reflective paint for roadways.

Is anyone using #6 beads? Are #6 bigger than #4?
