I’m looking for 20 7/8" diameter Sterling disks for a customer, that
are.063 or 1/16th inch thick. I looked in my Rio catalog but no such
size. Does anyone know where else I could find them?

Kind regards, Dinah.

try Metaliferous in NY - they carry both sterling and.999 in a
variety of sizes.

Cutter and buy appropriate gauge sterling sheet and a hammer :slight_smile:

Dinah,

I checked Metalliferous’ catalog and their SS round disk jump
from.75" to 1" and the heaviest gauge is 18 or.040." Possibly you
could sweat solder two together to create what you need. You might
check with them to see if they can cut 14 gauge or.064" 888.944.0909

Could you not roll down some sheet and cut them out with a disc
cutter/punch?

The only place I’ve ever seen silver sheet close to this wide was in
the Georg Jensen Smithy in Copenhagen. There they hand raise some
huge pieces, a very large covered serving platter that finished about
18" wide and about 25" long. The big stuff is hand forged - and may
be from very thick billets.

The widest commercially available sheet is 12".

Ok, I’ve shown my ignorance - where can you get wide sheet? It is
easy to get the disks cut if you can find the material. Most metal
shops have a big circle cutter.

Great question.

Hi All,

Thank you all so much for the great suggestions. I’ll be calling in
the morning. I think I did not make it clear that I needed 20 pieces
of 7/8" disks. Not 20 7/8" disks-LOL. These are going to be engraved
small disks for golfers bags for year end prizes. I should have been
more specific in my request, but got a great chuckle out of Judy
Hoch’s post. Sorry Judy, it was only through your post I realized I
wasn’t clear enough. I think the best way will be to buy the 14 gauge
and have them stamped out of that. I don’t have the punch set and
there is a time issue for this.

Thank you all for your generous it is greatly
appreciated.

Kind regards, Dinah.

OK - you got me - I read the request for 20 7/8 inch discs to be big
wide ones. Mea Culpa. As you have seen, 7/8 inch discs are easy to
come by - but now that I have raised the question - where would you
get silver wider than 12 inches??

I have never tought about largest size in silverplate before but now
I called my local supplier and asked. They stock 500 mm by 1000 mm
which comes to approx. 19.75 x 39.75 inch.
