Try visiting hunting stores - they're not free, but the small ball bearings they use for BB gun ammo, or slingshot ammo will be fairly cheap. Or do you need something larger?

Skateboards usually have a pair of genuine ball-bearings in each wheel (8 per board). If you can find some old or discarded ones they're not that hard to extract. L

Don't try to break them - a spanner or socket is all you need to take skateboard wheels off. L

Ah, I think I had some steel BB's once (pretty sure they went rusty...) - find a place that sells BB guns, crossbows, fishing tackle and stuff - see if they have any? L

I have two BB pistols, they're great.
One rather long shot is to see if there's anywhere around you does "shot blasting" or "shot peening" and see if you can get a handful. but that is a long one

id would go to the local skate shops, and ask for any ball bearings that are old, like extracted from boards in for repair...

For larger bearings, try scrapyards and motor shops.
