olympic bar repair

hello everyone

i was wondering if there was anybody that could help me out with some information. i have an olympic bar that is in need of repair, but i'm not sure if it's possible or how to do it. specifically, the collar, i believe it's called, has come off of the threading by the sleeve.

to illustrate: -----||-------------||-----

the || is what i'm referring to.

can i repair this myself? or do i need to send it somewhere?

any info would be great! thanks in advance..

I'd contact Glenn Pendlay and see what he has to say about your bar issue.

From the equimpent listing on the home page. WFS

Re: olympic bar repair

You should attach a picture. I have an inexpensive bar where the larger portion of the sleeve unscrews from the part of the sleeve that the weights slide onto. There is a set screw that locks it down.

Or if you have a bar of higher quality where the entire sleeve is coming off the bar, you have a different problem.

If it's a cheap bar, I would hesitate to pay anyone to fix it, better to spend that money on a quality inexpensive bar (read: Pendlay)

Like I say, on my cheap bar, I just keep screwing the parts together and I only use if for deadlifts, bench, or bar only movements of higher complexity.

Send me pics of the bar, I will be happy to tell you if I think it can be fixed or not.
