In all seriousness- any decent volume metal shop that does any punching will have buckets and buckets and hoppers full of round blanks.
finding them in thinner gauges may be harder, but if you have a metal fab shop nearby it couldn't hurt to call em up and ask.

I think I'd probably weld any holes in the floor, but I haven't done my floor.


When I was a kid I often had a pocket full of those round blanks that come from the metal electrical boxes in new construction. Same size as quarters and used to work in some pop machines. Sorry, east coast it's soda machines.

Sometime I'll take pictures of my blue bus that I used blackjack roof repair tar to seal the holes in the floor. I didn't have to individually seal the thousands of screw holes, but there is a black tar worm dangling from each hole under the bus.

I used pennies to cover the holes from excess moisture and critters. I used corroseal, then rustoleum, then used an epoxy glue then there is the penny. So if the coper gets through those 3 layers and makes contact I doubt it is enough contact to cause more problems than when the transportation department hosed the bogeys, gum, and puke out with a water hose.

Just wanted to add my non scientific view.

I'm betting your pennies are perfectly safe buried in your floor. In thirty years or so when you're redoing your floor you'll have something to look forward to.

I know you don't but you is both singular and plural.

Only takes a scratch. Its a chemical reaction. Doesn't need critical mass or anything.

That said, this statement is also very true.

I was plural, but I've lost a lot of weight.
