Default Any pipe smokers in Melbourne? or close?

Hi all in Australia but especially Melbourne and Geelong.
I know that smoking is becoming socially unacceptable BUT, I need some small steel tins for putting together some bushwalking survival kits and want to buy a few empty rectangular tins.
I'm happy to pay a couple of dollars plus postage, some tobaccos still come in useful containers so I hope one or two of you can come to my "Rescue" so to speak

They need to be steel, so you can polish the lids to use for a signal mirror, also I have tried many plastic ones and no way are they robust enough

I have a couple. I'd have to search the garage for them. I'm just up the street in Bell Post Hill

Then your garage is a LOT less messy than mine, I have woofers I haven't seen for years, damn things must be escaping under the door ( I think they breed if left undisturbed in the dark )

My garage is full of cars and car bits with a few speakers in there somewhere. I have tins full of nuts and bolts. Woofers breeding isn't necessarily a bad thing lol
