Where to get weights ??

I just go to Home Depot / Lowes and buy lead flashing then melt them in tuna, soup cans dropping a bolt / bolts where you want them . A small Bernzomatic torch will do the trick.


Call local tire shops, most will gladly give away buckets of wheel weights or sell them to you for scrap value. I melt them in an 8 inch cast iron pan, on a propane camp stove, and pour the lead into a large muffin tin. Another option is go to any swap meet and buy them for $3/lb

I get a lot from a friend who does roofing. He saves me the old fashioned lead flashing he takes from old roofs.
