Default Aluminum Beer kegs wanted

I am looking for old half/quarter and eighth barrels. They are mostly from the 1960/70's. Anyone know where I can buy some?

I actually ended up purchasing one like the picture from a flea market down the road. I cut open the top and am still trying to decide if I want to use it or not. I'll have to bang on the bottom and have someone weld a spot on the side, but I don't see any reason why they wouldn't work for boiling in, and I could use a bigger boil kettle.

i have one of those pots that i use for a HLT. i have a thermometer and sight gauge drilled into it, and after multiple boils havent had any off flavors or any part of that coating come off.

i was a little worried at the beginning as well, but haven't had any issues yet.
