    What's the going rate for a pair of milled 45's in this market? I dont really need them right now, but all my plates are a mix of modern and milled Yorks, so it would be a PITA if I ever had to switch plates to something with a non matching diameter. Seller is asking $180 for this pair. He indicates they have no cracks but were "pretty rusty" a year ago when he acquired them and he cleaned them up with 3-in-1 oil.

    3 years ago I spent $1.20 per lb for a pair of milled 45's and two pairs of wide-letter milled 35's.

    Agreed. And between Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and eBay, there is a fairly large range of prices.

    But IMO, some of that is convenience. You can pay a large price on eBay instead of tracking down and driving out to some far flung place to pick up some rusty treasure.

    Removing Paint?

    I prefer not to paint weight plates and dumbbells. I remove rust and add some oil. Done.

    I have found a couple dumbbells and plates, I'd normally pick up, but they've been painted. Is revealing the original paint beyond hope?

    And if so, what's the easiest way to remove the black spray paint and just get them down to bare metal without access to any fancy equipment?

    21.8 lb Plates?

    Any ideas?

    I thought they were early unnumbered Yorks. I'd just read the York History Google Doc from this thread (thanks, it's awesome). But the 21.8 lb weight is odd. There are four identical plates, and they all weigh 21.8 pounds each.

    21.8 lb is 9.89 kg. Are these unnumbered 10 kg plates? In the York History doc there are only numbered 10 kg plates. Did someone else make these?

    Any info/help is appreciated!

    Man, I'd agree with you. Everything is pointing to these being unmarked 10 kg plates, but there's no documentation of York making those. Perhaps another company rented the molds from York to make these KG versions. What do the backs look like?

    It's possible that they are unmarked York Kg plates, but it's also possible that they are Golden Team Kg plates.
    You need a good rack, a bench, and a 300-lb Olympic weight set. Now, what was your question?

    I unfortunately don't have a picture of the backs, but they aren't milled. Small casting flaws, not machined.

    Good thought on the molds. Maybe.

    I agree, also prefer my plates to not be painted. The plates I find are usually hideously painted. I just did some today. I used paint remover from hd. Works ok and then wire wheel since there is usually a lot of rust under the paint. Good luck

    I actually do the opposite since every plate I buy has been repainted (being vintage) and most people have no idea what to do and paint over rust turns out to be quite hideous.
    I remove the paint, wire wheel and oil them. Looks absolutely the best in my opinion 😉
