Thought this could be a useful thread....... I have been meaning to buy steel plates for awhile but the cost always turned me off when shipping was added in. I hadn't really seen much local. I just bought this: XSTEEL 8" AR500 GONG 3/8" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UY8O9LY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_tyifxbW4GPAFM When I ordered it it was $25 with A prime. What do you guys have?
