Hello everyone, been a while since I've been back to these boards. Anyhow, I'm in the process of finishing up my home gym and I was browsing Craigs List and saw a Weider 550 smith machine. I'm fully aware that weider isn't the best or anywhere near it. However, my wife is dropping her gym membership to come work out in the new home gym and she prefers doing her presses on a smith machine. The picture of the smith machine shows it to be almost unused. He's asking 40 bucks. What do you guys think? Or is it that big of a piece of junk to not even waste my time?
Current set up is basics, Powertec power rack, body solid bench and 300 pound olympic set.
Thanks in advace!

Seriously, walk away. If you're looking for a Smith, look for a Parabody or a Body Solid Series 7. Be advised though that you're going to have to shell out a bit more than $40 for either.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.
