    This is pretty much where I am at, checking daily. I picked up 2 pair of brand new sets 55lb. Competition bumpers at a fair price, that's a start.

    I played the waiting game on craigslist and jumped on a deal for .40/lb. Built a relationship with the guy and come to find out that he buys from gyms on the cheap and re-sells locally. He had like 80 bars from a crossfit gym that went under, selling them for 25.00/each. Now, whenever I need plates or shit, I just call him up.

    be patient on CL and jump on it when you see something that you like/want. I don't have too much more to offer than that as CL up here is vast. GL broski.

    There's a facebook page that is full of used equipment... commercial type equipment. That may be what you're looking for.

    I found a local guy who fabricates and he made me a copy of a Forza bench for $600, dropped off for me.... I put feelers out and managed to track down a gym that went under and was able to buy one of the original Frantz monolifts ( I posted it on Facebook and it was cool to see Ed Coan and a few other monsters talk about how they took their first xxx squat on it)...
    Then I put word out to my friends that I was looking and stuff started finding me..... a few bars here or there, a buddy who needed cash and sold me some weights and a really nice bar.......
    Sometimes stuff will pop up on Outlaws or PL watch, but craigslist has been best for weights for me
