A question from a fellow Facebook page

The "Forgotten Strength Secrets" Facebook page has posted the following question (which I am sure a lot of members will have an answer to):
How many of you collect old school lifting/bodybuilding equipment? Please share pics if you care to
The group can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Forgotten-Strength-Secrets but I am sure that we would appreciate the answers as well.

Hi Harry,
not having a great deal of spare cash i have never been a collector as such.However i am what i would call an 'accidental' collector.By that i mean that i have been able to pick a few older and sometimes rarer items in garage sales or off craigslist when someone is selling their grandad's old equipment that has been in his cellar for 50 years and such. Also friends have generously given me some of their own collections and these are especially items i treasure. Unlike some of the real collectors, who display their acquisitions,i use the old equipment i have.Their are many well known collectors on the Iron History forum and some are also members here.
Regards, Peter.
