    Why waste time building something that is so cheap to buy?

    Have made 2 this year for the firemen in training in the city. Used 2" T.G.P. or turned,ground & polished grade 1045 same as used in a hydraulic ram without the chrome. Was 7 ft. long & knurled in the lathe with a diamond pattern to give hands a place to grip.

    I agree you can buy some of them cheap but i am looking to make odd ball bars like saftey squat bar and a football bar they run like 200 or more.

    How did you like them with the 2in dia the hole way? would be great for grip work
