    They are sometimes called Avery weights, and some have Avery cast into them. Or a lot of other names, they were very common at one time, which is why there are so many around.

    Thanks, but don't bust a blood vessel looking for them. I am not in a desperate hurry, but can pick them up when they turn up.

    What about the weights they put on the front of tractors?

    They would work fine. But being a bit of a fussy old bugger, I would really like something similar to the ones I already have.

    Stage weights are similar in design, might open up a few more local options?
