    Did some more to the press arms. I finished up (for the most part) the upper mounts, and cut and prepped the press arms. I was able to do a little mock up rig, and it turns out that I would be able...

    I will have three separate connecting tubing, one for each of the different presses (flat, incline and shoulder), and theyll be at different lengths. Since the pressing arms are going to converge, I...

    Did some more to the lower arms. The hard part is done with these, and it helps me plan for the upper arms also. Im pretty much designing it as I go, so now I have a plan for the upper arm mounts....

    Ill just be using bronze bushings and 1/2 inch shaft/bolts. All the weight is going to be at the opposite end, and its not going to be moving fast so it should work. If it doesnt work for whatever...

    I have a men's pair and a women's pair of these and they work great! The resistance is at the heel and they fit tight, no movement. You can't do extensions with them, but for curls and kickbacks, I...
