Pitch - where can I get some?

I have looked and looked (in all the wrong place).
Where can I get some pitch in Brisbane? (To make a pitch lap for mirror making)..

Probably you can get something from a roofmaking company, as it is used in roofmaking.

You want optical grade pitch for its purity and working properties.

See http://firsthanddiscovery.com/selecting-optical-pitch

You may have to import yourself.

Contact Tom at "Gotgrit" in USA. I've probably bought more than 20kgs from him over last few years. Last time I purchased was US$28 a Kg, if I remember correctly.
