Inexpensive, functional bookbinding weights?  For those of us employed
in libraries, the next time maintenance personnel come through replacing
fluorescent light bulbs, ask them if they have any old ballasts.  ("a" as in
the
word "back").  They'll probably give you two or three.  You can snip the
wires off both ends, clean it off a little and have a very good weight.
Usually,
the ballast has a metal flange on both ends that lets you slide it in a tight
spot for
that little extra bit of weight.  Adhesive cleans off easy too.

Thanks for reading.  Enjoy your day.
peace, like a river.
