Re: Coins as car weights

Andy Sperandeo <asperandeo@...>

You can order .040" and .062" lead sheet online from Small Parts Inc., The 40 thou comes out to 37 cents an ounce in 12"-square
sheets, and the 62 thou is 40 cents an ounce in the same size sheet. Of
course, that's before you add in shipping charges from Florida, but if you
don't mind paying for convenience, there it is. (Pennies are definitely
cheaper, easily available, and non-magnetic, but they aren't as dense, which
counts for a lot when weighting flats and gons. They're harder to cut, too!)

So long,
