Hello from Canada

G'day all,

I heard about this place from another site, and got interested in older iron looking with envy at their vintage York sets and the "lesser" known brands. I think that a 300lb set loaded up on a bar with spinlocks is a great sight. I haven't done much in terms of collecting, but last night 3 Olympus and 1 International 45 pound plates followed me home. Vintage(?) Canadian iron. I guess I could do worse. I'm currently tracking down the rest of the sizes to make a complete set.

Beyond that, I'm an appraiser for an auto collision centre, volunteer firefighter, Army reserve Sergeant in the Artillery, motorcycle enthusiast, I give the impression I know what I'm doing when I play hockey

and my favorite lift is the press.

I think that about covers it.

Have a good one.
