I spent some time over the weekend refinishing the handles on the cheap bells I originally bought when I started training. I’m not going to post a how-to. It takes a long time and is just a pain. I am very pleased with the results, but I can’t recommend this to anyone. GoFit and York go straight to my personal “hall of shame” for the kettlebells that they’ve produced.

Just buy a Dragon Door or a Lifeline bell and save yourself the trouble.
