Where to get ebony star/Formica?

Hi all,
I need to get bearing materials for my new scope, but unfortunately ebony star/Formica is no longer produced with the right surface finish? Anyone know where to get the stuff?
Thanks

Gee I wish I knew that, I recently threw out some long strips of it that I bought from Dob Stuff several years ago. You could email Dennis Steele at Dob Stuff and ask him about alternatives.
