Silver solder & flux source? *LINK*

Don Henthorn
>When I owned a band saw I also had a blade splicing kit which had a small ribbon of silver solder and a thimble of flux. I repaired at least twenty blades with the kit and still had most of the solder ribbon left. That kit was sold with the bandsaw and now I need a small amount of silver solder to attach small pieces of HSS to rods for turning tools. Think I can find any small kits of silver solder and flux? Not a chance. HD, Lowes, Hobby Lobby, local hardware stores, 3D Welding supplies are of no help. Does anyone know where one can get a small amount of this stuff to use with my Mapp gas torch to do these little jobs?
