Where can one find large Pyrex (Borosilicate) mirror blanks? Does anyone have the formula for Borosilicate? If I can't find a good source for 36" plus sizes, I'm half-way thinking about Making my own.

Check out Newport Industrial Glass in Stanton CA. They have large thin blanks up to 40" as catalog items. I have purchased a lot of blanks from them over the years, although nothing that size.
