I see. If your not putting much more weight on the bar, 2-3 layered plywood "plates" should hold up pretty well for the time being assuming your not dropping them from above the waist on a regular basis. If there is an issue... wood is cheap and can be replaced.

As for "real" technique's -- hitech techniques seem to be pretty popular over here and are 17.5" / 445mm.
