Default Flapper valve

Does anyone have a wholesale supplier for flapper valves, like the airstream/big mac/little mac.. ?
They can be rubber or silicon.
Certainly all the bagpipe shops get them from somewhere.

They might all be made in house.

It just takes two cutting punches, one with a notch cut in it.

...Wholesale...Yeah ..Would be nice to find.....I can't believe people sell and people buy those things for +$5 each. I've accumulated a store of about 15 syn ones... but wouldnt hesitate to tie back on a ca 15 yr old leather one i made...recently discovered in my box of goodies.

I've always thot retailers could include a syn one gratis....as a repeat customer inducement....with any $20 order of other stuff.... IMHO.
