"Retail", you won't find them as they aren't produced any longer, except for decoration. Yeah, they are expensive. Antique dealers and "pick" locations are your best bet. "Cheap" is not congruous to this type stuff.

Old time junk yards (not auto recyclers), old barn properties, abandoned mines or collectors of old mining equipment.

You might be able to adapt something cheaper and more modern if you give us an idea of your project.

Might be time to learn sand casting and get a forge if there is a market for them. Maybe reproductions for the antique trade to make back your original investment. Maybe even buy weather beaten wood and make decorative carts for the folk art trade. You Can Cast Iron
