Default Carburetor diaphram material

Where can I find material for making carburetor diaphrams for obsolete carburators such as McCullock, Brown and others. I have some old saws I would sure like to hear run again.
Thanks, Richard

Can't give you a real good answer but you might try finding a re-build kit for a HL Tillotson. Those were decent size and you could possibly cut a smaller one from a piece of one of those.

carburator are made of "buna material" and can be purchased in different thickness depending on the carburator application.
