I have a set of coils in my 29' WP gondola which IIRC were made by Walthers. They seem to be plastic, but are very heavy and probably contain a metal core. Nice weight for the car. I made wooden cradles to hold the coils. Eight in sets of four over each truck is a full load for the 29' cars, but the 52' cars carried pretty much the same.
I also made a set of "steel" coil racks, but these are at the moment unused.

Bill; I cut aluminum cans with good scissors. I generally sand the edges with fine sandpaper to eliminate any fuzz. I mark the inside of the can with a fine marker, then cut along the line. You can even make coils with good paper wound around a wooden dowel. I also have resin molds I made from masters that I use for my many hot coil loads for gons.
