Re: Red Caboose flat car weights

You're kidding. In this day and age, if you walk in through the front door, the suits are going to want to charge you an hour at shop rate to even write up an order, and that's $60-$70 right there.

Find a sheet metal fabricating shop, hopefully one that does electrical enclosures, and walk in the back and ask for the foreman. If he's a nice guy, and they use suitable material, maybe he'll send the apprentice scrounging through the scrap bin for a "drop", and have him cut your weights on the power shear for a couple bucks to put in the coffee kitty.

But it's really easier to order some sheet lead and do them yourself with a scissors.
