you buy them. it depends upon how big you need. marble or bead makers use them. you can probably get them off ebay cheaply.

Graphite machines very nicely with nearly any cutting tool, even hand tools. The big problem is handling the shavings. When I work it I keep a vacuum constantly cleaning the cutting site so they don't fall or float about.

I agree with the hobbyist. If you are not careful to manage the dust you can and will short out your bushings on your electric motors as the dust is a conductor.
