I think custom making wheel weights is a great idea because they cost so much in freight. I wasn't aware you could buy lead ingot--can you? Or just melt down your
neighbors' weights while he's away?-----------

I have brought home various pieces of lead from the remodel jobs we have done. I've got quite a few pounds of it. Plus you can pic up wheel weight from car wheels to melt down. Takes quite a few of them though. I have mostly 1 1/2" and 2" drain lines from old plumbing that I am melting, mostly 1/4" wall thickness.

An additional consideration is that all this work would have to be spin balanced both clockwise and counterclockwise at many levels of rpm and tilt in travel . Lock washers both left and right handed will be needed. And a little Elmer's glue also . Anything else ?

I want my mommy! Okay that's over with!
Yeah, spin balance will be best with the high rpm's these tires will be turning. Definitely need the tilt balance, I'm gonna plow with this tractor yet. Think I should have them chrome plated to help with the wind resistance?

Oh yeah! Daniel, know where I can find a physicist to do my machine work? Can't ask ol' what's-his-name today' since you banned him.

For safeties sake,Kenny, when you cook that lead, do your breathing far from the pot. Otherwise a HD respirator may be needed.:D

The Elmer's glue fills in the gaps between the mismatched lock washers.

It will be out in the open air and hopefully a little wind. Only need to get close to add material and clean the junk out. By the way, is that a Home Depot respirator?

Don't worry, ducky. I won't be filling the tires with lead. I like a little smoother ride.

Don't have much Elmer's glue, Sparky. Will TightBond(SP) work?

Someone posted a link for the left-handed lock washers somewhere. I'll need to find that thread.
