I obtained an almost Olympic sized bar -- all my plates fit on but none of my collars do (I have the spring kind). Where or how can I get collars to fit it?

Pictures would help. –  Dave Liepmann Mar 6 '12 at 23:59
The bar is a Farmer's Walk bar. From scouring the Internet, I found a suggestion to use spring clamps, available at almost every hardware store cheaply. –  portabella Mar 8 '12 at 16:48
As in, you're using spring clamps and that solved the problem, or you're using spring clamps and it's still a problem? –  Dave Liepmann Mar 8 '12 at 17:03
@portabella Consider self-answering the question if you've found something that works for you. –  VPeric May 13 '12 at 21:54
This question appears to be off-topic because it is localised to your own equipment. –  Lego Stormtroopr Jul 23 '13 at 3:40
