How to Build Your Own Dumbbells
1. Only use Ivanko plates with Ivanko handles. Not doing so
can cause compatibility problems between the handles and the plates, which
may result in breakage and injury.
2. Disassemble all handles.
3. Soak the handles in thinner and use an air hose to blow out
any remaining chips or foreign matter that may still be on the threads.
Let them dry thoroughly.
4. Apply #2 Locktite into the threads and tighten the bolt. Final
tightening must be done with a torque wrench set at 125 foot/pounds with
a breaker bar. Reverse wrenches and torque the other side. DO NOT let
the Locktite sit for over 30 minutes before tightening.
