    In my search for a few of these I found this:

    It appears to be chrome (the one on the left, of course) ?? Not polished aluminum...?? It is a bit lighter than the standard solid aluminum block. Does anyone else have these? Can you tell me where they came from, are they a special run? Any info would be greatly appreciated. :)

    It's polished aluminum. I have polished them to a mirror finish. The reason why it's lighter is its the hollow version. Flip it upside down and you will notice this. I have several of them polished and unpolished.

    Thanks for the info :) That is interesting. I know the aluminum can be polished to shine, but these are not hollow. The bottom/base is solid. My understanding is the die-cast 'hollow' ones are a different alloy also... Hmmmm... More ?'s pending as soon as I can get back home to get pics of the base, compare the weigh (which also seems different)...

    BTW - the hollow die-cast stands weight just under 3oz, whereas the solid ones weigh considerably more, approximately 4 1/4 oz... the shinny/chrome-like one that is apparently a well polished solid weighs in @ 4 1/4 oz.
