I don’t think that I shared this with you yet.
Here is one of my bad purchases.
It was 2 AM. I was surfing ebay for equipment and found these 2 bumper plates.
80 Euros for 2 TKCHIN 25kg Bumper Plates, labled “for 50mm Olympic bars” …
Their auctions were only running for a couple more minutes. I was tired. So I bought them.
Here they are, living their lonely existence in my home gym.
So when they arrived I was like “WTF is that?”
What’s wrong with them? Non standard, 43cm diameter … and what’s more …
It is a 70mm hole!
See for yourself:
The seller did not lie. 50mm barbell fits in there without problem.
Please tell me I made an awesome purchase and these are very rare, antique and valuable plates that were used at some historic competition, back when Napoleon ruled France.
If you know something about this company or when & why 70mm holes where made, let me know.
