    You have to put in work, but you can accumulate these metals without too much trouble or expense.

    For example, Aluminum, you can easily collect cans discarded

    Copper, talk with some plumbers, get a job as a plumbers helper or a copper smith helper, or anywhere where copper is used, copper smelter? Ask for cast offs, cut offs, wastes, etc. Over time you can accumulate a nice chunk of copper.

    Lead, again, talk with people who braze with lead based solder, people who cast lead, really any industry or job that has to do with lead metal, and ask again for cast offs or cut offs etc.

    If you want to get wet you have to walk out into the rain. If you want these metals, you have to work with or be around wherever these metals are found. Easy really.

    At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan
