Wanted: 200kg of (cheap) weight plates

Hey all. I'm after 200kg of weight plates, 10 x 20kg plates probably and the cheaper the better as they'll only be used for a leg press machine. I'll be looking through all the usual internet stores, eBay etc., but thought I'd see if anyone had recommendations of particularly good people/stores to deal with. Or maybe you have 200kg of weight yourself up for sale .

Cheers all.

    We have a load of 1" bore (the hole size) including I think at least 160kg in 20's at our unit. If these are ok make me an offer.

    Thanks for the offer, but I need plates with Olympic bar size holes which I believe is a 2".

    Cheers.

    With the cheaper leg press machines the 2" pin is just a sleeve which sits on 1" bar underneath. Have a look.

    I'll check that out, but it was a custom made leg press and I don't believe there are any sleeves in use.

    Cheers tho!

    I use standard plates. Mobster, give you 33p for the lot!

    Will cost hundreds on postage to Swansea probably!!
