Re: Free Online Classes via Coursera

Dad was a communication hijacker, for sure. I was a Joy Thief to a friend the other night who told me about starting Olympic lifting and learning the lifts with attention to form. I think I hijacked it with a beef I have with a trainer at my gym then kinda remarked how people fap to form and never r...

Re: Box Squatting

Hey Jack, would you mind elaborating a little bit more relative to the "...spreading the load over more muscles and taking the stress of of some joints" please. Would you recommend someone older transitioning to box squatting? I'm not having any issues but I'm not moving the weight that you used to...

Re: Titan Safety Squat Bar v2

I'm about to take my SSB to the gym and let it live there for awhile. I've always liked them + bought a 2nd hand one before lockdown. The last time I used one regularly was 2013 and it just seemed like my numbers were always on par if not more than regular bar; which struck me as odd because I swear...

Taking the valve off a keg

I picked an empty keg up from a curbside garbage collection which I'd like to fill with water and empty as needed. There are YouTube tutorials about how to do it to create strongman kegs, but I'm led to believe there's a possibility you can turn them into ballistic missiles if you're not careful. I'...

Re: Pandemic projects (stealing from Schlegel)

I'm back at my gym, but they're on weird hours - with breaks throughout the day to supposedly to disinfect everything. Yesterday was my first day back and it was a bit seedy with all the people around. I've been a bit in denial about the virus, but even that was a bit much. I'm keeping the big 3 lif...

Re: Here's an unusual headline

Yeah I'm starting to slowly see prices coming down here on local classifieds. It's been a source of amusement during the quarantine. Local online stores are now getting certain stock back in too, at regular prices, so there's a lot of gougers now who look stupider. Something that was eluding me was ...

Re: Any Rust Removal Experts Here?

Next you guys will discuss how to get dog shit off the floor. Just leave it there, it's a gym ain't it? The issue is their last owners did that and some of them might not be usable too much into the future. They're old-school Samson plates which aren't common in Australia so I thought I should do m...

Good onya, Bram. If there has been one positive thing, it's being able to pick up stuff like this without the chaos of normal life. I studied part-time with a full-time job a couple of years ago and it was so hard to be fully present doing either. I've found since work's been less for me too, I can ...

Re: Any Rust Removal Experts Here?

I live in the southeast US, and used to restore old rusty British cars as a hobby. Once I was onto the bodywork part of a project, I would seriously have to strip the panel bare to see what I was working with, do any repairs and welding, then re-strip it to bare metal and prime it immediately. It's...

Re: Any Rust Removal Experts Here?

Luke if you have access to a battery charger, you can go nuclear and remove it with the electrolytic method. Upside here is it removes it all and there's no waiting afterwards as with some chemical processes. Maybe dry it in a hot oven for 10 minutes but then you can cool/paint immediately. This is...

Re: Any Rust Removal Experts Here?

Thanks nafod and Alfred!

I will grab the Evapo Rust and then follow your procedures. Nafod's tutorial stated not to work within 24 hrs of rain so I'll heed that. Something I suspected but thought I was being too overanalytical about!

I scored some dumbbell plates recently in an old school gym firesale. They were in OK condition but I wanted to get what rust there was on them off before a repaint. I followed some YouTube tutorials - 50% water/vinegar baths, sanding visible rust - and applied some Penetrol http://www.floodaustrali...

I tried reading some of the Q stuff and just found it way too cryptic to understand what was being explained in the first place.
