Somebody recently posted this rack in the rack thread and got me thinking about this rack. I actually recently saw two of these for sale used here in Raleigh, NC, although they were already spoken for by the time I set eyes on them. There was also a rack similar to this my football team used way back in the day when I was in high school.
I'm curious if anybody out there has actually had one of these made before. Other than Rip, of course. If you have one, please share your pics and if you don't mind how much did it set you back to get it made?
I recently contacted a couple of welding/fabrication shops in Raleigh to ask about this project, because I'm curious just how much it would really be and I've been on the lookout for a second rack anyway because one just isn't enough for crazy people like me. I'll post back with what I find out regarding costs, because I'm sure others would be interested out there.
Here are the images from the starting strength site.
