Where to buy new/used (working) 5.25 floppy drives?

I'd need as many as possible. I checked ebay, but they only have a few--though cheap and they charge 15 bones to ship. Is there some used computer parts junkyard out there on the internet?

At my office, we have hundreds of 5.25" diskettes and they need to be copied to the server. We have one drive and it would take whomever hours to copy them one by one. Ideally, I'd like a 5.25" floppy jukebox, but doubt they ever made those. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Newegg.com, is where I purchased my Hi-TeCh black Floppy. It's amazing in that it is so very stable and rocks the benchmarks.

thanks all. geeks.com didn't seem to have any. I'll try newegg. Plus, if I can talk them into buying a dozen or so, then we can store tons and tons of bytes on them!
