Where did you get the vanes for the vacuum pump?

The Vanes in the pump were ok and reusable so I didn't need to source them. They are Fiber Phenolic material.

However if I needed, I would probably source a a Phenolic fiber board and cut my own vanes. Wouldn't be too difficult.
A quick search I found this.

My engine is back in place so I can't measure but I believe they were 1/4'' thick.

Garolite Micarta 1/4 thick
