Oh btw, if my calculations are right we should be able to load the Inch DB handle to at least 223# with the new thin solid 5Kg plates I have been working on. That is without the shorty spinlock collars I was going to make and now don't have time to do. If I had those as well would be able to hit at least 255#. Well beyond anything I am ever going to lift on it. I hope the 223# covers what Tanner or Adam or anyone else can do.

Adam has a #220 bell with a slick as glass handle. We can hop it off the ground sometimes. 

If there isn’t much rotation and the handle has a good texture....maybe we can get there . That will be my goal, max out the handle!

Making progress on trophies. I hope I have the coatings done in time on the last few. It is going to be close and some late nights between now and Saturday. Last night I was able to do first coat of copper on 3 more, and acid etch and prime another 2 Sahuaros. 2 more 5Kg plates finished and one more just needs chamfers on the outside. That leaves one left to finish outside diameter turning. I cleaned up and ground tops of remaining Sahuaro parts and arms last night as well. I had hoped to get them welded but there was not enough time. Have to get welding and priming of remaining ones done tonight in order to have a chance at finishing coatings in time on the last 6 as well as cut the remaining plinths and get those primed.

This year, the trophies were a hell of a collaboration.  I don't think either Aaron or I thought they would be this much work, but the sneak previews I'm seeing are pretty amazing.  I think these are the best ones to date.

Progress update. I picked up the equipment from the gym last night to get accurate weights on the 2 DBs and check out the Saxon. I managed to weld up the remaining 6 Sahuaros and get them primed as well as a little patina work on the already completed ones. I cut the rest of the Plinths to height (8x) and got 2 of those deburred and primed. Patina done on 3 plinths and one cactus, those just need clear coats now. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow. I finished turning the 9th of the 5Kg plates and started finish turning on the last and 10th one. Pretty thrashed today. Got to bed about midnight or a little after last night. Elbows, etc barking today. Not expecting any great lifts from myself at this point in the comp but hoping to have everything done and put on a good comp for those that show up.
