I was so excited to see my 2.5 & 5 lb machined weight plates arrive. I'd been looking for them everywhere online and could not find them--everyone is stocking their home gyms these days so inventories are nil. So found this company, and they had them. I was just looking for some iron, but it didn't hurt to find that the craftmanship was impeccable when I opened the box! Had a great experience with USA Iron and will be ordering from them again! Thanks!
