i can't seem to find the right one when i was at Homedepot.
Here is a closely similar picture of the Trim:
.......but if you'll look closely at the examples in this Thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...=865218&page=2
in my tutorial (3.25") does not have a double outside curve that the 3.75" Trim seen in the 1st image.
I would think that if you simply ask someone in Lumber to help you locate the "3.25" x 5/8" MDF Base Board Trim", you'd get steered to it pretty quickly.Edit: OK, I found the exact info you need:

No offense, but I don't see how that would represent enough data to help someone make a decision if there were no direct comparisons made between 3mm & 6mm.
What is helpful are specific references made by someone who has used both...and I've tried to relate that using 3mm Sintra carries with it more procedural risks than using the 6mm variety.
Really...the ONLY reasons one might even consider using 3mm are easier transportability due to increased flexibility...and the lessor cost per sheet.
But those "advantages" can be all too easily outweighed by the caveats that "thinness' bring into the equation.
That said, discounting one having any such problems, the 3mm will perform exactly like the 6mm.
