    Two of mine have labels that are legible enough to clearly see "PTFE". And all of mine are 5-1/4" OD.

    Four of them fit very nicely in a milk crate.

    There are ways to glue teflon. Heck, I have adhesive backed teflon tape. Pretty useful stuff.

    But the labels as applied don't stick very well. One of mine blew of in the truck, and the other fell off when I got it home.

    Try Loctite Super Glue or Loctite CA. Gluing Teflon to Teflon won't work well, but gluing Teflon to most anything else (including paper, ali, nylon, etc.) works well enough.

    Now a week or so later. I went by for the after-scrounge. Someone had moved the remaining six rounds so they were partly concealed, but I got all six for a $20 bill. My question is: there are actually paper labels glued to the ends with writing on them. What kind of glue sticks to Teflon?

    Well you could have bought them and passed the deal on to your friends on the HSM forum.....but then I guess you don't have any friends huh?

    If those are Teflon, they are likely worth $500 each.

    Nice score! I love having plastic around like that for certain projects!

    Teflon is available in any diameter you wish, just like anything else. It just costs an arm and half a leg to obtain.

    I once turned a Teflon piece that was 500 mm in diameter and a 700 mm long. It turned out to be a very large cone to be used when moulding some sewer tank. They used it as an insert to the mould and when the tank was solidified, they yanked it out to get the mould open. Teflon was the only material that repelled the plastic material they cast the tank from.

    And it is a pain in the ass to attach, as the slippery surface is slippery.

    The general impression is that plastics are "cheap"... until you need to buy raw stock for a project It always amazes me what it actually costs! I probably would have picked it up too for a fiver apiece. I have a larger round that is left over from something. I've found some good uses for it: electrical socket covers, a new key to replace the missing one for my nephew's "Cozy Coupe" Well worth having, lakeside53.

    I still think this is Teflon - The specific gravity of UHMW is about 0.93-0.94 (less than water). This is 2.18 and in is the land of Boeing - lots of weird materials to be found.

    Well, I got a like-new pair of nice blue jeans in my exact size and the fit I like for a quarter at a yard sale Saturday, and the guy threw in a magnetic extending pickup tool for free.

    Good score. I got one today- a pair of mirrors for my bike. I broke one a couple years ago, and I've just been living with it. Today I went to a garage sale and found them- $5 for the pair. Then it turned out to be 1/2 price between 12 and 2- just when I happened to be there.
