I feel this is like asking where to find unicorns

Is there a source for these X shaped bits besides finding used ones, 
usually in a drill.  Or NOS that has been dug up.

Never seen any in the wild, but I have converted a few yankee style. Not a task
for hand tools, but not a difficult job on a lathe or mill with a little prep,
should you have the need. I used a toolpost grinder and an indexing disk in the
lathe. I doubt I'll do it again.

I believe M-F continued to use that pattern, so the supply at sails and flees is
abundant

I just give all the GP drills I find to Greg I, who has a few GP bits, and
keep the Yankees for myself

clearly an east coast west coast thing, then.  out here in the magnetically
weak bay area we see mf pushdrills pretty rarely, and certainly in large
ratio yankee:mf.
