This is why I'm glad it took me a long time to find this site. I spent several years playing with three discs and making them fit the lines I needed instead of carrying a disc for each hole (which I did for the most part after finding this site before again settling on a core of versatile discs with a couple specialty discs sprinkled in for good measure).
