RMH Barrels

Where might one acquire a barrel or drum for the RMH?  I can't find anything, even used, under $150 US.  No one on my local craigslist has anything, I've checked ebay and they are all local pick-up, WAY far away from me, and everything is crazy expensive for the nice drums.
Help please?

Where i live, any garage or motor vehicle  workshop will have empty oil barrels.

If you've got one of those Jiffy Lube or similar quick oil change places near you, that's a good source.

Thank you so much!  I didn't even think of that.  Our mechanic is a home business and one of the towns nearby has a Jiffy and a Mineke.

Cinder sends his thanks too.  Ciao for now! :)
