Change Plates

Where is a good place to find cheap change plates? I'm looking to pick up a handful of 1.25 lb & 2.5 lb.
MDUSA is out of stock. Rogue has them in stock, but I'm just wondering if anyone has found them elsewhere.
Thanks.

Re: Change Plates

2.5# plates should be readily available via CL, Play It Again Sports, or even Academy / Sports Authority. Even new they don't cost much.

I made my 1.25# "plates" using (per plate) two Fastenal 2" washers, PN 33038. I just taped them together with electrical tape (a bunch of it) and wrote "1.25#" on the tape. Works great.
