Almost any Electrical supplier should carry them of be willing to order
I'd check other suppliers in your area. If that doesn't bring up anything,
try a Google search on "Cadweld sales, Cadweld one shot sales" or other
stringsalong that line. The second brought up 238 results for me. Not all
were what I was really looking for but there appeared to be plenty of sales.
I purchase mine in carton lots at the local wholesaler "Medler Electric".
Some say they are not hazardous material, but mine came shipped as such but
the carton does not list them as such. They are potent when ignited, but it
takes a lot to ignite them so I'd not think they'd be classed as hazardous
