Not there either. I'm sure they would do it as a special order but that would quite expensive. What I'm looking for is blank disks varying in diameter from 8 1/2" to 4", aluminum would be good.

I've often wondered how cast iron weights from barbells would be as gear blacks or flywheel blanks.
Any comments?

Since the only technical requirement is that they be of the right weight, and can be melted for the pour, I figure it'll be pot luck. You might get good or bad. If the foundry was in a "producing" kind of mood on the day the stuff was poured, it could be nicely chilled, and harder than the hobs of hell, or it could have cooled at a nice mellow rate and be beautiful stuff to work.

One of the first metalworking projects I completed in high school metal shop was a flywheel weight for my Suzuki trials bike. I had found an old 5 pound cast iron barbell weight while delivering papers one day and decided to shave it down to fit. Teacher was not happy about that choice of materials but he tolerated it. Worked very well and taught me some lessons about turning cast iron. Most likely that bike is still spinning that disc.

Make your own out of round bar stock.

9" Diameter stock is rather expensive.

Talk to a local job shop for flame cutting the blanks from plate, just be sure to allow for clean up, Or have them price cutting them from their bar stock.
