Would anyone know where I could get the flat wheel weight mounting washers? I've got three sets to put on my 1250. One set is on now I may add one or two more for when I go to a show. Thank you for any info.

Member hammerdown has been thinking of doing some custom plasma cutting jobs.  Maybe you guys can get with him to make you some.

We use grade 8 washers at work that have a smaller outer diameter than a common flat washer, and they may fit in the wheel weight pocket. You can probably get a bag of 100 for 8 to 10 bucks for 1/2" grade 8 washers. They are thicker than standard flat washers, too.

​Never been that route so wonder what is special about those washers?  Have a pair of Bolens weights mounted using standard washers.  Must be in the stacking process?

Sorry , I should have been more specific on the washers. They are indeed unique as wilburj has shown in his photo.

Find you a shop with a laser cutter. They can knock a bunch out for you in a few minutes.

Looks like they would be simple enough to make out of Bar stock. Measure and cut a little long with a Chop saw. Center punch and with a drill press, Drill and tap 1 hole and drill the other hole and round off the corners with a bench grinder.

 

If I had dimensions and some heavy 1" wide bar stock I could make them. 

 

Wonder if they are heat treated?  Only way to tell is with a File test. Soft mild steel a file will want to grab into. Hardened steel will make a file skate off.

I work at a shop that does this work every day I'll see how many I can knock off on the Haas this week if I get time.   Hopefully some will still need them by then. lol

I have a detailed drawing I can try to post tomorrow.  One hole is a through hole for a 1/2 bolt.  The other is a tapped 1/2-18 NF (fine thread) I believe.  The FMC version of your pictured Bolens weight states max stack of three weights. Casted right into the weight.  The Bolens weight does not state a max but I wouldn't push it past three.
