Yes, Edmund made them cheaply years ago, and they were often give as free
promotional items. Too bad they stopped production of this unique physics
toy. I still have a few of them.

I contacted Hendrik, the owner of Grand-Illusions. The disks cost around
$2 each, but he offered a 20% discount for orders over 100. Still
relatively expensive, but I guess the manufacturing process is more labor
intensive these days. Not sure who will buy these disks or even knows of
them, but maybe the costs will go down over time.
