Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Power Rack Thread - August 2010 version

A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Water Rower Restoration

So I got a killer deal on this water rower the other day. The only issue with it was, the tank leaks. The previous owner used a bunch of caulk around the tank, but it still leaks slightly, and it looks pretty sloppy to say the least. A lot of the bolts/screws had rust along with a few other...
