Default Corner Dots anyone?

Hey guys, I know Tamiya, Hot Bodies, and HPI all used to sell corner dots, but I can't seem to find any anywhere. Does anyone know of any source that still sells corner dots? Thanks.

Yes generally farms will give them away and many are intrigued when you tell them what they will be used for. You may want to check Ebay or local papers or put out a want add in your local publication of choice, but the local farms are the best bet.

I have recieved free disks from local farmers, but they were trashed, I ended up buying new ones from a farm supply. The key is make sure you just want the disk, and not the bearing housing and all. The last disks I bought were 17 bucks each.

Go to any farm implement/tractor dealer. They will have tons, literally, of discs lying in some corner of their property. I used to get them for free but now they charge me the recycle dollars they would get for them. If you do not have any in your area then you would have to make a road trip. Make sure you have a vehicle that can handle the load as these things are heavy!!
