Default Local Source for Brass Drifts

I am embarrassed to ask but where did you folks get Brass Drifts from. I have been to ACE, Home Depot, Advanced, Auto Zone and am getting ready for a call to Harbor Freight but after not finding anything at the closest stores to me I don't want to keep running around.

TIA

Harbor Freight has them again! I saw them at 2 different stores over the weekend, they both had plenty of them. $7.99 or so. I will be back there again this week is anyone wants me to grab some for them. They have the flat and the pointed ones in stock.

Try Sears
http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...6515000P?mv=rr

also try napa. they may not have it in the store but they can look and see if it's the warehouse and have it that day of the next.

China freight usually has them...

Harbor Freight was the only place I could find them back when...I also checked all the regular car parts places and Sears etc. and nada...I thought they would be easy to find since they seem to be a popular tool to use

Probably a good idea to pick up a couple more sets next time I'm at HF....

Napa has them pretty reliably. Harbor Freight seems to be hit or miss.
