Default Mica pads for TO-264

Anyone know where I can get these or something else that will do the same job?

Mica sheets, scissors and a hole punch are my universal pad maker
(way cheaper too!)

Mica can also be scavenged from some old soldering irons (rolled up inside).

If you are not stuck on mica, the recent Kerafol group buy had TO-247 pads that were huge, and could fit TO-264 transistors easily. You may want to inquire if anyone has any extra. These pads have excellent thermal ratings.
