It takes four total to mount an extra plate onto each side of the tractor. If everyone that has asked about them orders a set of four the price will drop very quickly. If Bud makes 36 of them the price drops to $7.84 ea. These things are hard to find it's great for an opportunity to get some made for us.

 

Only takes 2 per wheel weight?    6 per side of tractor.  

 

Let's see your prices!  I'd like you to know I'm not making a cent on these, only offering a service.

 

Going to be around $36 to $45 for a set of 12.  That is like 3 to 4 a piece.   I am making no money ether this is my free time and money I am spending.   I already got $32 in stock to make 50.    I plan to order another bar so I could make 100 of these in one shot.

Sorry guys I did not realize that both of you were making these. I have a set on my 1250. So in order to put another set on I will need 12 washers?

It should take 12 all together if you stack 3 weights

Ok great thank you. I hope that this all works out as far as making the washers. I don't want Bud and Wilburj to feel like they are competing to do this. I did not realize we had two members working on this. If we can come up with a plan for the washers I'm good as long as this does not cause any friction between anyone here  :thumbs:

No problem here, Just like to see everyone get what they need. It looks like you need Wilburj to make them at $3.75 each!

No problems here ether. I was in contact with another member a week or so ago about making some I just been slow getting to them.   Little busy at work.    I plan to order more stock before I run any I only had the stock to make 50 total with what was on hand.   I like to make 8 sets or 96 total.  

 

I'll even make a video when I am running them.  lol

I have 80 done guys let me know how many you like.     You need 12 total to do a set of 3 weights per side.  

I made them out of cold rolled and hot rolled steel that is what I had on hand.   

 

$4 each plus shipping that is a total of $48 plus shipping for a full set of 12.   I can do smaller lots to.
