Re: B&R or Castro vs Rogue bar for Room gym


If you oil or WD-40 weekly, in your small area, the smell will be prevalent. My guns all have the well oiled smell where I store them, I personally like the smell, but I'm also not living in th area. You have had previous problems with CAP plate stench, so I would have to believe a raw bar bar should not be in your future as long as you don't have a dedicated lifting area.
I did have an adventure with weight plates I wiped those down with soaps, alcohol, degreasers and couldn't stop the smell, so it was probably the paint, not any protective grease.

Either way can't have any prevalent smells. If I wipe down even monthly there will still be too much smell for a week. And that would force my choice to a rust protecting coat.
