Looking for a FEP sheet source.

Where do you get your FEP film?  I stupidly bought a polarized sheet of FEP when I bought my printer.  Good news is I have two vats so its not urgent, but i do want to get the second vat up and running again.

Preferably an Amazon link if possible.

It's not Amazon, but McMaster-Carr has FEP and a nFEP available.

FEP:  https://www.mcmaster.com/85905K66/

nFEP: https://www.mcmaster.com/84955K26/

Both come in 24" wide rolls of 1/2/3/5/10 ft lengths.

I don't go through FEP super quick, but have had excellent luck with this from Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B085J2W3JN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

 large enough I can get two sheets out of one for my standard photon, and one for my mono X

It's most economical to buy a roll, you can usually get multiple sheets cut out of it if you trim things "efficiently". Since I have multiple machines it also helps in sizing things properly. I try to buy 2' lengths.
