I have an opportunity to buy sticker from a big dry kiln company. They use 6' ones and when the break they have been putting them a side.
They will cut them 4' for me and sell them to me for .50 cent each.
They are made in Canada.
What do you think ?

This is an excellent price for grooved sticks.  Commercial prices for new ones are often 50 cents per foot.  If they are not fresh out of the kiln, then you do need to heat them to 133 F throughout to kill any insects and eggs.  Also, you wan;t them at under 10% MC before you use them.
