I have been looking at the Slate routines in Practical Mental Magic, does anyone have any idea as to what a silicate board is in today's terms. Not really interested in purchasing a $60 - $100 set of slates when all I need is a silicate board.

"Pure Calcium Silicate Board are specially used in Non-ferrous metal fields. These board have the characters of free-asbestos, high temperature resistance, high strength, low thermal conductivity, non-wetting, thermal shock resistance and very good machining property. These board can be easily machined to precision components, and widely used in Non-ferrous metals casted, found, glass field and steel industry".

One supplier is

The early type boards contained asbestos. I do not know if the new manufacturing process will work for your needs. I can tell you the stuff you want is not real cheap. It may be better to buy a good quality set of slates. The Pure Calcium Silicate Board are only available in white as this may be another problem.

The real question is why do I even know what the stuff is?

Hope this helps
