I know this is a message board for BAF, but I need help desperately! I keep getting acrylic barbells ('cause they're cheap) but they end up breaking (or the threading strips). I had a black steel barbell that stripped and I had the ball crazy glued together. Tonight it decided to just die on me. I tried gluing it several times but no no avail.
I know there are several wonderful companies on BAF who have offered to make me a custom barbell, but I am really strapped for cash. Right now I have a 2 gauge (or 4 gauge) acrylic barbell with 100 layers of tape on it. I'm in dire straits here! Has anyone ordered from Tribalectic? I'm looking at a 00 gauge stainless steel barbell for just under $50 (US). </p>
I've had companies offer to make me a nice stainless steel barbell with smartie beads for nearly $100. They're respectable companies, but I just cannot afford that until I start working again (and pay off my mastercard.</p>
I'm just trying to get my tongue as big as possible before splitting it. I might get a second barbell near the tip of my tongue, stretch that some, then split it. Then I'll have a split tongue and a stretched hole. That way I can decide whether I want to split it more, or keep both. The largest barbell I can find is 7/16" and I can get it one inch in length for just over $50 (US). So many people have teflon/PTFE plugs in their tongues on BME, but o-rings just slide out of mine. I can ONLY use barbells.</p>
Someone help me.
