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...

Vintage Iron Thread

Hi All, I read a post a few weeks ago in which SnowOne and DonForeman suggested a vintage iron thread to discuss/identify old plates.

I received my $1800CAD OBXS-20kg bar a couple of days ago! The bar was out of the tube and the blue/metal caps were at the bottom of the tube on the other end suggesting that the entire bar was taken out. The corners of the sleeves were dinged and scratched. My aluminium beater bars have less...
