So, I got a handle on this old Marcy Physical Fitness Products multi-gym. I don't have the technical savvy to show you a picture, it's going for only fifty bucks, and I can see adding it to my home gym. The guy's got a hyperextension/roman chair that he'll sell me for five more bucks. I'll be picking that up, too.
Here's the description: It's made of chrome-plated steel, like the old Universal machines you'd find in your high school gym in the '70s and '80s. Like the Universal machine, it has a press station, a pulldown station, and a ladder-style sit-up board. It has two selectorized stacks at 180# each and two stacks at 50# each. The smaller stacks attach to a pair of high and low pulleys. The footprint on this thing is only three feet, and it's seven feet tall. The thing has to have been made well before the age of the internet as nothing that looks like it comes up in my searches. I'm a pretty good guesser, and I guess it's built in the '70s or '80s.
I'll take pics of the thing once it's installed in my basement, and I'll get my wife to teach me how to attach a picture. But, I wonder whether anybody has encountered these machines. I'm interested in your advice and counsel.
You know, I recently warned somebody on this very forum to stay away from "anything that has Marcy in its name" for his home gym. I painted with too broad a brush. I guess I hadn't realized then that I'd find such a swell deal on a kinda vintage multi-machine that would add so nicely to my home gym.
Fire at will.
