I have been looking for the last several week for a disc, just one disc maybe a 14 incher. There none to be found around here, like once upon a time every farmer had a couple worn out discs laying around he would give you. Not even the scrap yard has anything laying around, did the scrap prices go crazy or something?

No, but they have been showing up in junk shops left and right around here. The past couple shops my wife has dragged me into had a stack of them sitting in the corner.

Yard art makers are buying them, rotary hoes, saw blades and other farm related items. Discs and large circular saw blades are popular with the people who have computerized plasma tables. Big$$$$
