Collecting entomologists,
We have been using Elefant pins from Austria for the past several years and
now it seems the company is defunct, machines are down, or are otherwise
unable to provide pins.
Could any one please offer us some alternative sources for insect pins?
There is a bad taste in some local folks mouth about Morpho brand pins as
they are considered weak, with little tensile strength.
Has anybody tried Austerlitz?
We would appreciate any help.
