And put them on an axle, all side by side (maybe about 1/2" spacer between each?) and put a hitch on. (This probably isn't an original idea)
The hitch would need a place to set a cinder block or two for some weight.
Think that would be a good project? Or waste of time?

I don't think you could get enough weight to do you much good. All those wheels would increase the bearing surface so there would be little pounds per square inch. I had a job in the factory where I dip painted 1000 40 lb cast cultipacker wheels per day.
Lifting them off a rack hanging them on the dip paint line and then restacking them amounted to 80,000 pounds lifted per day.

That could work. Depending how far the hubs protrude (or not) would set your spacer. I'd keep them pretty close together, but trial and error would figure things out.

The weight would probably work best over the wheels.

Would a single gang disk set stright set the seeds buryed and then just drive over it with just the tractor to push the soil flat ?
