    Yes. My wife came with me and it was a 30+ min drive. We made a stop on way home. I said not sure it was worth the drive but I had to.
    I paid $1 for the plates. For 25 pounds I don’t mind. The 10 was .80 per I think.

    I haven't heard anything about the Legacy DBs coming back (or any news on the Rogues since the teaser), but I'm definitely interested in either of those for finishing off my 5-100 roundhead set.

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat, I'd like to add to what I've already got. York had told me that when I was ordering a dumbbell rack from them to hold some roundheads....have my fingers crossed it just wasn't sales talk.

    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.

    I'm on "spread" with you, but this is truth! There's no 'going rate' post COVID, you can expect anything from $0.50 to $2 per lb, just depends how much you want it.

    Fix Loose Roundhead Head?

    Other than welding (which I can't do), is there a way to fix a loose head on a roundhead dumbbell? It doesn't come completely off, but it is loose.

    There really isn't. You can weld the head back on the grip, or you can cut off the heads and sell them as blobs. When you buy roundheads you should put them down on concrete and listen for a ringing sound, which will tell you if the head is going to separate from the grip.
    You need a good rack, a bench, and a 300-lb Olympic weight set. Now, what was your question?

    Aw, man. You were the guy I was hoping would have some magical solution. Lol. Well, thanks for the purchasing tip anyway.

    I knew this one was loose and bought it anyway, because of the cheap price and my inability to walk away from York. It's only 30 pounds though, and I know some people like those baby blobs, but Im hesitant to make15ish pound blobs. I'll just use it for some accessory lifts and avoid overhead.

    Thank you!

    Yes, I've heard of some people inserting salt water. The subsequent corrosion causes the metal inside to expand, making the head tighter.

    Found this 15 bun, sure I’ll never find another, but couldn’t pass it up. Was in PIAS, Also grabbed this 5. They were charging 1.79 per # for used iron plates, bun was 1.50 per #. Price gouging for sure and they had a bunch of used iron plates. The pandemic is over as far as equipment goes. Almost left the 5 behind, but had to rescue it.

    In the last month I've picked up another pair of York speed collars and a really nice OB-84 and collars for very fair prices from the local PIAS, among other more common things. Prices here are heading south, but still over $1/pound for used plates. They a number of milled Yorks and unbranded Ivankos, but nothing I needed.

    This particular PIAS has always charged more for things. They have a hammer high or front pull in the store listed for 1600. That is way over the market price. They also had one of those continuous motion machines they were trying to sell for 8000 I think. It’s gone so they must have sold it.

Price gouging for sure and they had a bunch of used iron plates. The pandemic is over as far as equipment goes. Almost left the 5 behind, but had to rescue it.
    $1.79/lb is nuts for a place like that. The one I used to frequent was $0.59/lb. If you bought a bunch of plates at once they'd usually knock it down to $0.50/lb.

    Yes, .60 per was typical for some, .80 for others. I was ok paying 1.50/# for the bun, but they had all used iron dbs at that price. Including some Very beat up crappy dumbbells. They had a few roundhead singles, 35, 45, 50 I think.

    The problem is around $1 per lb is the norm for Craigslist/Marketplace, so naturally they need to charge more to cover themselves. Play it Agains are also pressured to buy a lot of new merchandise to stock their stores with. When they pay retail themselves, they of course need to charge more to cover wages and facility costs. They're probably not even making a profit, but it gets more people in stores and keeps them there longer.

    For an initial gym purchase, not worth it. But for scouring vintage items I'll gladly pay $1.50 per lb.

    Anyone have a source for a sliding T handle bolt that fits the 80s York speed collars? I believe they're 3/4" coarse thread.

    I believe bench vices use a similar bolt for swiveling base. You may want to search around for that.

    Thanks, I did actually look that way, but if there's one available in 3/4" coarse thread I haven't found it yet. Fastenal/McMaster/etc. haven't turned anything up, but I might not be using the right search terms either.

    I did find some similar bolts available on ebay, but they're all for the smaller standard York collars.

    Made in USA hex dumbbells?

    I've heard of USA stamped roundheads, but these are the first USA stamped hex dumbbells I've seen. Anyone got more info?
