my local hobby stores have metals from K&S Metals. usually in the airplane or supplies area. tubing, solid stock, and flat 4x6inch sheets of brass and aluminum. they usually have a label showing the thickness of the sheets. you would have to cut them out with sheet metal cutters.

Depending on how little or much, you can use anything thats the right thickness.. ive seen guys use a wrapper from a ciggatette pack to get .05 more out of the bit .. As long as you dont over crank, they shouldnt compress..
