Here's one source:

Brion Toss Yacht Riggers, Sailboat Rigging::Brion Toss Yacht Riggers Catalog Shipping Information

As I said earlier, I'd suggest Brion's Point Hudson Phid rather than a traditional fid.

Only took about an hour. It seems nice and flexable , I think it will go through the windless gust fine.

Looks good.
Something else to add is I have seen heat shrink tubing slid on the three strands where line meets chain links to aid chafe protection. And link you use should be smooth no burrs.

There is room in the link you could braid in another loose cut single strand or two, anyone do that to add additional safety margin?

Heat shrink will jam the windlass, whipping with thread (or spectra fishing line) will still make the splice stiff and sometimes creates feeding problems. I have considered whipping the individual splice strand ends, spaced at intervals down the splice. I use a vertical windlass so my line makes a 180 degree turn around the windlass and then makes another 90 degree turn to dive down the hole into the chain locker.

Not on the entire splice, just short pieces on the strands

I am probably crazy enough to do that too.
