Default Good Place to Buy Plates Online?

I'm in need of some 0,625kg plates.

I've searched all over, but no one here in Iceland seems to carry anything less than 1,25kg.

Do you guys know of a place with fast international shipping of plates from where ever to Iceland? I'd probably be buying two pairs of 0,625kg.

I have 0.5 kg little metal plates that I got from Werksan. Leo Totten is great and will really try to get you what you need I am sure!

Thanks. Their prices seem to be fair, now I'm just waiting to hear about them about shipping costs to Iceland.

Turns out they don't ship out internationally unless the order is $500 or above.

Any other suggestions?

Hi Júlíus,
Another possibility is

I don't know much about these plates or how much they charge for international shipping though.

Each pair is 1.25lb, or 0.567kg.

14 links + 1 clip for each loop would be 22oz each, or 0.625kg.
