    Sourcing safe insulating material

    Oh wise folk.

    I'd like to get my hands on a small variety of insulating material suitable for vaping bits.
    From reasonably firm to quite flexible, think the silicon (?) o-rings in stardust tips to something larger in a block that can be machined/cut/moulded.

    A small prize for information leading to the arrest of the required stuff.

    I'm really not sure what you are after so just thought I would have a look at some different things.

    8 X 10 " .10 FISHPAPER fish paper ELECTRICAL INSULATOR Dialectric fiber sheet | eBay

    TO-220 Power Transistor Mica Insulator/Insulating | eBay

    5.5mm Threaded 15mm Depth 40mm Long Stand Off Ceramic Insulator White | eBay

    Let me know if any of these are alright or have I totally got it wrong.

    Fish paper Bullos, fish paper? I've never seen fish paper, but I don't think that would take a good juicing and retain it's characteristics.
    Mica and I are old mates from way back, but very hard to machine into exact shapes, and not flexible.
    Love the ceramic stand-offs for another purpose, but not easily machinable.

    A credit for effort, but no small surprise for you, you'll have to do with my temporary respect.

    How about that plastic chopping board stuff - machines really well with routers and sharp things
