Question Cheap DC power supplies?

I'm looking for a power brick or wall transformer that can output 24VDC at ~1.2A or so. They seem to be pretty expensive because the most common thing that needs that much current at that high of a voltage is a laptop computer. I guess they figure they can get away with price gouging people for the power supplies because they're meant for expensive electronics. Does anybody know of a good source for these? I'm still hoping that I won't have to build one myself.

If you need regulation search for open frame power supplies on the web, there's hundreds of companies doing them.

There are also a number of surplus type electronics vendors on the web and sometimes they come up with bargains. I seem to have lost all my links to them tho, sorry

I don't know how it is where you are, but here there is a Goodwill computer store with buckets of cheap AC and DC adaptors.

Hey, thanks! Two days ago I looked at the adaptors at partsexpress and somehow only saw the 24AC adaptors and not the one thats 24DC. One amp might be enough, and $18.60 is better than the $30-$45 average that is the best I've been able to find anywhere else.
