Default Gasket question

hey fellas i was just in true value today and i saw that they had copper flashing for roofs. The offered it in huge rolls for 50 bucks a pop. Thing is that they offered small squares of the aluminum sheeting witch was not very malleable. So my question is does anyone know where i can buy smaller pieces of copper flashing so that i may use it for making head gaskets? even a small roll would be fine if it was less than 10 bucks or so.

Most hardware stores have a rack of hobby material like small brass, aluminum and copper tubing, sheet, rods etc. look there.

Still no luck check the yellow pages for roofers, they might let you have some scrap or even check with your local metal recyclers, I know mine has boxes of scrap copper sheeting.
Straight tubes suck, the beauty is in the bend.
