Thom,

I got a mountain of aluminium spinning plates from Dubé cheaper than normal because they are seconds. They have some cosmetic defects but work fine. I don't want to sell them, but maybe dubé has more?

Also, many people use regular plates that you can buy in a store, except that you drill a little nitch halfway into the bottom where you put the stick. This, and some other plate spinning techniques are in the book Contact Juggling by James Ernst. Another good book for plate tricks is Manipulative Miscellanea by Reginald W. Bacon. Both books are available from Dubé.

I don't know of any videos... Anybody?

Hope this helps some,

étienne
