They had both steel and aluminum ones. They also have scales handy.
What kind of metal, Jess?
I saw them at the Sun Valley location but would guess that they have similar stuff in the show rooms of their other locations as well.

Strange you should mention this, I have been thinking about making something like this for a while. I planned on using Tungsten carbide, which is 40% heavier than lead for volume, and apparently its the second hardest thing on the planet, next to diamond.
Can cut it like butter with the wire though, so it would be easy to make some weights.
How big do you want, can do them pretty easily and send them over....

For a non-Steadicam project, I'm trying to find compact weights between .75 and 1.5 lbs that already have a 15mm or smaller center hole, or are simply solid. Trying to keep it simple rather than overloading my already overloaded machinist by giving him a block of heavy metal to fabricate these. Anyone have a line on anything like this?
How about these Charles?

Thanks Kevin, saw those. At 3.5 lbs, 3-5 times heavier than what I'm looking for.
Ah ok. Wasn't sure how strict the weight limit was.

For some clamp on options of all sizes.
For steadi applications.
Don't know weights.
All available in stainless as well.
Two piece, a little more flexible for mounting.
3/4 inch= 19.05 with our bushing reducers might fit to use on 19mm rods.
