    Farmers Walk Handles

    Hey guys, just wanted to show off my new farmers walk handles. They are homemade, made of steel and welded. They are 53 inches long I believe with an 1.25" handle, weigh 37lbs a piece and cost about $30 to make. They are obviously plate loaded as you can tell by the pics below

    Also I gave them a run today. Worked up to 187lbs without much of a problem. Should be fun to have and see how heavy I can get with them and a good tool to improve grip strength. And they will be able to hold any amount of weight I can put on the bar. I won't need to worry about them breaking anytime soon.

    Feel free to leave any comments/questions.

    Nice man. Did you do the welding?

    Well I should have mentioned but my dad works at a machinery. And I've worked there before too as a summer job. So just had to find scrap metal and pay for the parts, I designed them and my dad turned the parts, and had a person had the machinery who welds for a profession weld it all together.

    Bro, you should have gotten the handles lathed.

    You should get your dad's co-worker to weld you the most heavy duty power rack ever.

    They are lathed, thats what I meant by turned. My dad's been working on a lathe for 33 years so I trusted he'd do a pretty good job.

    Hmm... very true, that's my next project, parts would cost a little more though

    Oh, theres no knurling on the handles. I didn't want any. I know in many competitions there isn't any knurling on the farmers walk handles so opted against it. Could've easily done it though

    I know it's taboo to dig up old threads like this, however I can't find my answers through searching....

    TrettinR, would you please tell me what the dimensions of the handle are; the height of the handle off the bar and the length of the gripping area?
