You can usually find drops for sale on E-bay.

Online metals has it too, in many shapes/sizes - hex, round, square etc. Fun stuff to work with.

If any of you really want some ...... I have about 900# of it in blocks from 3x6x6" up to 8x12x18'"( dont try to pick that one up!)
no reasonable offer refused. Beat if you live around the west side of Portland OR. and can pick it up,shipping it can be a *****.
be aware although it turns and mills wonderful, it will also rust when you look at it and welding it is iffy

you guys do realize that it rust if you breathe and you can't weld it for sh*t, but it machines nice

It's not as bad as 12L15 and it silver solders just fine. What do you prefer to use for machine tool parts. 1018?
