This is so awesome I’m a machinist and I love discing and have been playing around with the idea of trying to make a disc in the shop I’m gona keep an eye on this post to get better idea of the geometry. Obviously this isn’t going to be something I’m going to throw but I’d like to just say I made a disc. Any idea what type of plastic the discs are made of? In our shop I think I can get a hold of celcon that would be the size I need idk if that will work or not.

AHA, i wanted to get in touch with whamo to try to figure out the ultimate roller disc...

but now i see plastic technology called polymorph! plastics that melt in 140F water and harden at room temp.

So i'm probably going to order a few kg of this stuff (not from that website in the video, i am not affiliated with that site, plenty of other stores sell it) and start molding my own discs until i find the right rim.

I guess styrofoam would make the easiest mold. hmmmm. the adventure begins.
