    If this question is not allowed mods feel free to delete it... Im building some disc cookers or Cowboy Woks and was wondering if anyone knows of a place to order unfinished disc blades w.o the holes or paint... Agri-supply does not have them that I can find...appreciate any help..

    It is my understanding that the whole thing started with guys getting worn out disks from farmers, welding the holes shut and turning Free into Profit...Is this feasible for you?...JJ

    They are tough to find without the holes. There are a few places in the mid west that sell the without the holes. I don't have the links handy. They aren't cheap, by the time you figure the shipping. Honestly it's cheaper to get a one with a hole and have a welder ( if you don't weld) close up the hole. They used to be fairly cheap at scrap yards around ag-communities. But with the price of metal and artistic crafting they aren't as cheap anymore. The last one I picked up 26" dia was $25, but now more like $50 here.

    There are no used discs around here anymore when scrap went up sky high all the farmers/scrappers took them to cash in...Ive built 3-4 from the ones with the holes in them its just a pain to weld them shut and then burn/grind the finish off of them... not sure what they use for finish but its some tuff stuff, even after burning them its a pain to get off, adds alot of time to making them..
    As far as shipping goes its gotten crazy, agri-supply wants 27.00 to ship one disc, even thouth the disc was only 26.00...if you find any links to the holeless disc would greatly appreciate it, might look into getting a quantity buy discount if there is such a thing anymore..
