Hello from New Jersey

I recently ran into a couple of ironhistory members while searching out vintage York plates and bars. The members were very welcoming and showed me their vintage weight collections. These two guys have just amazing collections and it was the first time I had seen such treasures. I became interested in vintage weights because I have some Bur-Bell plates. Recently I acquired a 70s-80s era York Olympic bar and a set of plates and a 50s-60s York Olympic bar. And here I am, by the suggestion of one of the members, searching out more information on vintage iron. Looking forward to being part of the group and hopefully somewhere along the way I can contribute some worthy information.

Andy, welcome to ironhistory! Yes, we have members who are indeed expert in matters of old iron, and members who are expert in other areas. Please do some reading to get a feel for the forum, and I look forward to your input.

Welcome Andy.

Collecting and using iron is a great hobby - one that you can use to your health benefit!  I hope you and the other newer members feel free to ask questions.  We all learn by the answers to these questions.

Hi Andy, welcome aboard. As Joe said, there are many members here who really know a lot about old iron and many other iron game subjects. I have certainly learned a lot from them. Good luck with building your collection.

Peter.

Hey Andy. Is the 50s-60s York bar  seven feet long?

Hey Andy,

welcome to a great forum.  Lots of reading if you're prepared to go down the rabbit hole.  Did I mention the loads of great pictures? Did I mention the rabbit hole?    Have fun!
