ebay under ptfe sheets.  I just bought some that came from China but there's plenty from within the US.  It was much cheaper than what I found locally.

Ebay. Pay attention to what thickness your ordering.

I second McMaster-Carr. I've bought a lot of "Virgin PTFE" from them ("Virgin" = not recycled). A very wide range of sizes and thicknesses available. A whole bunch of parts for my big Dob in my avatar picture came from McMaster-Carr. If they don't have something, it's probably because it doesn't exist LOL.

You beat me to it.  Bought a nice piece from them a while ago.  Always check ScopeStuff first!
