    I made a homemade adjustable kettlebell last night, like this:
    kettlebell.homemade.jpg

    It's all standard black iron pipe & fittings
    The handle is 1"x6" nipple
    That is threaded into 2 1" elbows
    The nipples going down are 1"x5"
    Then there are 2 1" Tees
    The weights go on a 3/4"x12" nipple
    That pipe has two 3/4" end caps
    One of the caps is left loose enough to hand tighten.
    I'm going to clean it up with degreaser and then paint it matte black. I found that the old pancake weights, like Cap still makes, fit fine, but the Weider weights wouldn't slip onto the 3/4" pipe. I'm going to fill in the exposed threads with Bondo and sand it all down before I paint it. I'll post pictures of the final product when I'm done.

    My horror novel, Wolf Hunter (written under my pen name, J.L. Benet), is now available from Belfire Press. For those who like your werewolves served with a side of bloody gore (as opposed to sparkle-fairies and ennui), this is the novel for you.

    Hi - Has anyone used a brake rotor for a weight plate?

    I know its really ghetto, but I just did my car and kept the rotors. Im going to take a wire-cup attachment to one and see how it goes. Anyone done this before?

    Because basically a few weeks ago I found a 7ft+ 2" pipe in the dumpster. I wirebrushed it and it looks nice, now I want some matching re-purposed plates for it. One side of the pipe is actually larger than 2" so the rotors would fit great. I do have nice plates, I just like lifting objects not professional like real plates.

    Nicely done. I was considering making one of those for a while before creating my kettleplate (shown on page 2).
    Great idea to use Bondo to smooth it all out before painting it.

    I haven't used a break rotor but I attached some tires to my deadlift / OHP barbell with some spin-tight compression collars. You could probably clamp the rotors on in a similar fashion.

    Haven't posted here in awhile, but I built another Reverse Hyper over the weekend out of some scrap steel I had outside. Yeah, it's rusty and I haven't finished the top, but I'm hoping to add it into my PL program asap.

    Thumbs up welder 565

    Been following this thread fora while as a non member. I am currently rehabbing from a hip arthoscopy, so I figured now's The best time to join and ask for advice on drilling holes on the out side of my welder 565 rack in order to add j hooks on outside. Also I have a question on recommend pipe to replace my severely bent bench rack bar. I am Currently 170 benching 275, so overtheyears the bar supporting the actual bench has bent. I plan on just replacingthis bar with steel cut to size. A new rack is needed but from surgery I have been out of work so plan on modifying this rack as needed. Also any suggestions to strength rack in General. Before surgery I was squatting 365 x3 on this rack which I have heard is pushing it's limits tho it felt sturdy to me.
    Thanks guys I'll be posting pictures.

    Need a little help. Making a wrist roller. Have PVC pipe, little piece of rope. What should I use to hold the weight on the rope, and do you put anything on the pipe for grip? Hockey tape? Had this extra PVC for a while finally deciding to do something with it. Any advice appreciated.

    I've seen people use Jubilee (hose) clips to attach the the rope. Make sure you leave some slack in the rope to wrap around a few times, as this takes a large portion of the load off the clip/rope. Using this method is great if you have any plans on mounting the roller as it leaves the internal portion smooth.

    If you aren't planning on mounting the roller, you can drill a hole in the pipe and make sure you file the edges smooth. Place the rope though, and tie a large sized knot in it. What I find has worked well is getting a large nail, putting a slight bend in it, and then tying a good knot around that. I've never had mine fail yet.

    yeah if i'm thinking of the right conversion, 3mm thick?

    i've been using it fine since then , hasn't fallen apart
    it's only to hold the 5's,10's and 15's , everything else fits on the rack.

    I dunno. A high bench can be really nice for rowing. Might be nice to have around.

    You're right. I've got a flat/incline bench right now that's just too danged high for a good push-off by about the thickness of a 45# deep dish plate. Got so tired of laying down plates at the base of my bench that I brought an old flat utility bench in from the garage to replace it until I can cut it down and butt weld some plate to its base.

    I was reminded of a high bench I made many years ago to fit over my t-bar and, alternatively, for use with a barbell beneath it. I really enjoyed that. It's true, though, that a high bench has very limited uses.

    realised my gardens way too small to do any decent yoke walks and have no drillpress so i redesigned my yoke to fit through a door, (couldnt be botherd to cut out supports so i just orderd roll cage supports for the top bar, will weld on)



    need ideas on how to increase its empty weight so i don't have to bring all my plates outside to use it (i'm estimating its only around 60lbs) ; filling with concrete won't add much ...

    How about welding four vertical poles- one on each corner. Take 4 buckets, cut holes in the bottoms using a drill mounted hole saw the exact size of the upward pointing tubes. Place the buckets over the tubes and fill those with concrete. Add some chicken wire and fibres to keep the concrete nice and strong. You can either break the buckets away, or leave them on. Just an idea. You may need to also weld on some small bits of flat bar to support the buckets better.
