You're best bet is to look for a supplier of WAO5/1500 grit aluminum oxide, or smaller grit if it exists (WAO3?) and make your GG yourself.

ground glass

hi everyone A few month,s ago I finished a static adapter .I tried many types of ground glass : homemade , with every type of grit, acid etching. the best glass to date was purchased fom a optical company for $22, the company was optmo sigma, and the glass was 1500 grit 50mm I think someone had a source in england
