Your going to need some big arse wrenches to get those off that disk.
Ive changed a few out in my younger years.

We have 2 farm supply stores with in 10 miles of where I live, but you can order them online from Tractor Supply co. or some other farm supply store.

Around here used or damaged ones are very hard to come by as there used for dock support leg bases.
I built dock supports some years ago, got damaged discs from my now deceased FIL.

What a shame indeed. A decent disc here with the handles on it sells for no less than 40 bucks and that's for small disc. Cool thing is you can make a lid with another disc. The lids are great for frying and steaming. My BIL has a lid for his. Great for when he makes whole fried black bass or tilapia. Prevents lots of splattering.

Bull......Please explain how they are used as dock supports. Something totally new to me.

Thanks everyone!

Bob

Bob, my grandparents had a little cottage on a lake.
The dock rested on concrete blocks that you had to put in every spring every fall.
The beams of the dock rested on the stacked blocks.
Then somebody mfg aluminum pipes with a cross bar that took the place of the concrete blocks.
They were over a hundred bucks apiece.
I took some discs, inverted them and welded them to some pipe that fit inside the disk hole in the center. I welded the cross a bar to the 2 upright pieces of pipe and that held the dock.
Much easier to carry an H shaped piece of steel out in the water than say 10 concrete blocks for a section of dock.
I took care full measurements before I did all the cutting and welding and they turned out great, price probably ten dollars a piece for materials and welding rod.
The disks were inverted, that kept them from sinking down into the sand at the lake.
The dock was more stable on the home made supports than on the cement blocks.

Man Bob, tradition and family history means a lot to me, but, that disc is a real treasue, and you appear to be able to cook pretty good on it too. When I first read the thread, somewhat carlessly, I thought you wrote that it 'is your dad's, but he is old and it will be yours soon'. Don't know how that popped into my head.

Makes perfect sense now. Amazing the different uses for these old discs. Too cool!

I edited the thread early on. What I was wanting to say was that is has been handed down over the generations and my dad says he's gonna hand it down to me one day too. Then hopefully I can hand it down to my son one day also.
Kinda feels like my Grandad is there, looking over our shoulder, when either me or my dad use it.

Outstanding Bob! Quick question, do you apply shortening on it to keep the rust off after each cook, like cast iron skillets?

Thanks everyone. Gary, my dad keeps it wrapped up in a cloth sack and a few plastic bags and tucked away where the water and moisture can't get to it, but yes, we do give it a thin coat of cooking oil once it has been cleaned and ready for storage.
A recommended method for cleaning if it has lots of burned or stuck on food is to fill it up with water and bring it to a boil. Ther hot water will loosen any particles at that time and a quick once over with a sponge or towel will clean it right off.
Al--I had to take advantage of the weather. We had highs in the mid 70's, no wind, gorgeous. Perfect day for discada.

Thanks again.

Bob

The age and history of the disc... truly, the most genuine and touching story I have ever seen posted on here by anyone.

I KNOW that disc cooks better than modern ones.... the old ones carry heat so much better.

I love seeing the process too.
