Default Ambroid gone?

Anyone have a source for Ambriod cement? I can't find it anywhere and have been told that it has been discontinued.
I'm aware of the alternatives but I'd really like to find the real thing.

Yes, I tried that. While many offer it for sale I can't find one that actually has it. The last shop I called was in Connecticut and the woman laughed
and said 'I wish we did!' They haven't had any stock for months.

Thanks for the tip but no joy. The guy was helpful but they don't have it any more.
Thanks again.

My distributor told me they get a small batch when ever the company makes a run of it. last run is going on 2 years now so hopes are not very high.

I've heard that before, i.e. that it is not continuously produced but in periodic batches and I recall some years ago that it disappeared for a while
and then suddenly was back in the shops (and I foolishly only bought two tubes) so maybe we are due for another run?? Unfortunately, my hopes
are not high either since the only phone number I can find for them doesn't answer. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

It must still be available? I have a friend that is a 75 year builder... He still gets his Ambroid out and takes a deep whiff of it now and then... He says he is checking to tell if it went bad?
