Nice work Ascend!
With the barbell, since you're working out at home, if you stand on the scales with the barbell and then get back on the scales without the barbell and subtract one load from the other you can get the exact weight of your barbell; if you wish. That's what I do.
The 1" barbells tend to be about 1kg per foot, so a 6' barbell will be around 6kg, a 5' bar will be around 5kg etc.
