Well I cannot find the bookmark for my guy that sells the aluminum disc

that are drops from making a special valve...

 

They are sizes about 18+ inches in diameter and over 1 inch thick...

 

Anyone have a link, I need to order about 5...

 

Best Regards,

 

Preston

There is also an e-bay store https://www.ebay.com...o?_bkw=aluminum that is selling the same items.  Not sure if officially affiliated or not.  Have not ordered from either, the sticking point on my end is shipping cost from coast to coast.  It's possible that ordering directly or through e-bay could end up being slightly cheaper.

Thanks Toups, but the Ebay shipping cost is as much as the aluminum disc...

 

Sands Machine shipping is a 5th that price...

Good to know, I thought that once when I checked there wasn't much difference and shipping was on order of the disk but I was using the standard UPS tables. I don't know if they have a discounted rate.  I'm just too far away.
