Dumbbell Storage

Wall Storage



I finally got around to hanging up my small York Roundheads.  York produced small dumbbells from 1-10 pounds + 12 pounds.  Most can be found relatively easily.  For some reason 6, 9 and 12 pound pairs are rare and command between $5-$10/pound.  I was fortunate to find 7 and 8 pound pairs in the wild for around $1/pound.  I have put together 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 via Vintage Weightlifting Swap for $3-$4/pound.  It will be a while before I finish the set.

I plan to display the 5-12.  I will probably stash the 1-4 on mantels, book cases and my desk.

York also produced a salesman sample 0.5 pound dumbbell that is really hard to come by with collectors waiting months to purchase.

My medium Roundheads started my collection with 20-20-25 bought in Erie for $2/pound.  Locally, I was also able to find 15-15-15-30-30-40-40-45-50-50.  I traded weights for another 25-40.  I still need 35-35-45 to finish the series.  I should be able to manage these for $1.50/lb.

I am struggling at the heavy end.  I took ownership of a big haul including 55-60-65-70-75-80-85-90-95-100-100 locally.  I paired up the 60 via Vintage Weightlifting Swap.  I would like to liquidate the 80-100 and pair up the 55-65-70-75.  These weights are too heavy for me to train with on a regular basis and moving or selling these is not easy as it is difficult to ship anything over 70 pounds.

I have several urethane coated dumbbells that I use for functional fitness including 8s, 10s, 12s, 27.5s, 35s, and 50s.

I also have several that I need to sell.  Pro Style 25s, 45s, and 55s.  Neoprene coated 15s.  Cast Iron 10s.
