    slit in the foil. so again,

    I have only the new aluminum foil. $9 a roll for 150 feet. I can do quantity
    discounts.for 10 rolls or more.

    No one that I know of sells the "original" window foil anymore. There
    is some that is being sold that is made of aluminum, but it really
    doesn't do the job. It's too thick and you can't "work" it the way the
    original could. It might be OK for repair but it's real shinny and
    thick. I haven't used it, but once seeing a roll of it ...... I just
    wouldn't use it.

    Fortunately, I was lucky enough to buy a supply of the original before
    the Brooklyn Foil company went out of business. It's sitting in my
    freezer, hopefully preserving the adhesive back. I use it for repair
    and when a plate glass store front window has to be replaced and they
    don't want to go for the glass breaks. I don't understand because it
    cost just as much to refoil ....... but hey ....... thas hokay wit me.

    The other thing I don't understand is .... you can still buy foil
    blocks ...... what for?

    It's lost art now.
