    I have gathered about #500 of exercise machine weights from my local dump [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] Some are plastic coated, others just exposed iron. It just took a little patience and about four weeks to get that much. Try a local welding/stel fabrication shop. They will often have cutoffs in the scrap pile that you can get very reasonably. Since mine are just going in a box, all they have to do is fit, looks don't matter [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Joe
