I get all my cores from old high power switching supplies.  You just
unmount the transformer, remove the tape holding the core together, then
boil it in water.  The cores come right apart.  Here locally, I can find
surplus 5V 1KW supplies for $20-$50.  If you are lucky, you also get a
nice bobbin and some teflon insulated wire.  Rob.
