    I've been trying to find ways to attract a little broader range of clients (more women). You don't think the old Yorks would be too intimidating compared to Ivanko Revolvers?

    I would look at finding a sandblaster in your area. Refinishing is all about the prep work, and having them sandblasted would be the best for cleaning everything away, it'll take all the paint out of those nooks and crannys, and you will end up with a much nicer finish in the end. Find a good shop, and they will have that done in way less than an hour, and you will probably pay less than $100.00 to do it. I've tried sanding, buffing, grinding, etc to refinish equipment, and in the end I just get stuff professional blasted, it saves time and money in the long run. You might even think about having the plates powder coated satin black if you can find a good shop to do it. Powder coating will take a lot more abuse than rustoleum will.

    I was thinking if I do pick up a bunch of used Ivanko revolvers, I was going to take them to my powder coater, have them blasted and coated black. What would you think of that compared to my York plates?

I am undecided weather I am going to spray them with satin of flat. The satin makes the milling stand out more. I may even speay a pair just in clear coat. A friend of mine cleaned a set up and did that and they came out great. These absolutely need to be redone because the previous owner killed them with a shiny black paint.

    Has anyone ever soaked the plates with some type of paint remover ? I been using a small disk called a sandblaster to get of the paint but it takes a very long time and it will not get all the paint off in between the letters.

    This good advice, and since we're just talking about iron plates, they can be blasted with a "normal" media like sand for dirt cheap.

    Here's a tip to save you some money if you decide to go this route - check for a headstone/grave marker dealer in your area. They generally do sand blasting, and will often do it for dirt cheap. The place I used charged $35/hr, with a 1 hour minimum. I'd just drop my parts off, go get lunch, and they'd have my stuff done by the time I got back. I wouldn't use them if I needed to maintain a perfect finish for a show-quality paintjob, but for something like iron plates, they'd be perfect.

    I think that these have been listed for a couple months. Can probably get everything for a little cheaper than .50/lb.

    I am not a York man but I did get a chance to visit the store and museum this week. Both, the store and museum, are located in a nice building adjacent to the York factory. The self guided museum tour was free and takes about an hour to go through. A fair amount of information is displayed but I wish there would have been more items on display. The museum has a section on York founder Bob Hoffman followed by sections on old time strongmen, powerlifting, bodybuilding, and olympic lifters through time.

    I need to make a trip there, not sure I would be able to leave. This may be a little sacrilegious to do in a York Barbell forum, but, I am looking to get a 300lb set of Ivanko Revolvers. I am noticing they are pretty difficult to locate, anyone have any plates they are willing to part with or have any ideas on where to find some?

    I have sandblasted weights in the past and it cost a fortune here in New York $175-200 per hour . I will deffinetly look into the gravestone maker. I have several pieces in the future that I plan to get sandblasted then powder coated before I got into your York I got 1200lbs of ivankos sandblasted then powder coated wrinkle black they came out mint. When I got the bill I nearly **** my pants. It would of been about the same price to buy them new. I still have them but allways prefer my milled yorks

    Quick question for the York experts here...

    Were there any other manufacturers of split-sleeve oly bars back in the day? I found a guy on CL selling some York plates, a split-sleeve bar, some misc. dumbbells, a bench, and a couple 1" bars for pretty cheap, so I snagged the bar for a song...but it has me puzzled.

    It's a obviously a split-sleeve bar, but I'm not sure it's a York. It doesn't have any markings on it at all, not even between the sleeve and inner shoulder. The very end of the bar is threaded and the outer ring and inner shoulder are held in place with set screws instead of roll pins.

    Here is the listing: http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/hab/3356605624.html

    Here is the bar:

    Everything about it looks like a York bar to me. They didn't start stamping them York till later. Also the early bars didn't use the roll pin, they used the hex bolt like yours has. Take some steel wool and clean the rust off it and clean and re-oil the brass bushings and it will be like brand new. Nice pick up.

    Very cool. I hit the whole thing with a wire brush in my drill, cleaned all of the old oil/grease out of it, and reassembled it with a bit of 3-in-1 on the bushings. I was hoping it was a York, especially since the plates he had listed with it are Yorks, but the differences between it and my other one had me baffled.

    Even if it isn't York, it's worth what I paid for it - $30.

    One of my bars is an older York bar. The older bars aren't marked and they have set screws. The flanges on mine are much thicker than the "newer" bars.

    York starting marking their bars "York" in the late 1970's. You'll see the occasional transitional bar with set screws and the "York" markings. Great find!
    You need a rack, bench and 300-lb. Oly set. Now, what was your question?

    I have a bar that looks very similar to yours that I picked up with a full set of ExCel plates so I assumed mine was an ExCel bar. It has the split collars that are very close in size, slightly different from the York style. I will take a pic ad post it when I get a chance.

    Are those newer York plates or something? I'm never seen any like them before.
    They almost look like "Fitness Gear" plates.
    Can't quite tell but I doubt those are York barbells.

    That poor bench looks like it's going to collapse. What a crappy design.

    If anybody is looking for some good bars near Austin, TX - http://austin.craigslist.org/spo/3365285179.html
    The seller is willing to sell the bars seperate and has 2... the knurling on both of them look very good... One of them is split sleeve... not sure if it is York (last pic in the ad). can be bought cheap, but will need quite a bit of restoration.

    The bar may be worthwhile, but I think that guy is pretty close to being in the CL dreamer's thread.
