Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym. A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

3/4” Pin Rack Mount for 1” hole Rack? Wobble Concern or OK?

Stray dog equipment was highly recommended here in other threads but my hesitance is they use 3/4” pins claiming compatibility with both 3/4” hole and 1” hole racks. Personally I’ve never heard of a 3/4” hole rack, I guess they must be commercial or something stray dog themselves makes. My...
