    THat's a pretty sweet deal. I would jump on that if I was you. Of course it's only a smith machine, with all its caveats. and the outer "j-hook" allows you to bench/squat, but there's no spotter. So you'd need to add sawhorses or something to spot yourself, if working out alone.

    And it's exactly 7' high, measure your ceiling before you buy! And realize if it's a tight fit, you won't be able to use the pull up bar, since to do a pull up, you need the height + the height of your head. Of course you can improvise with the bar...

    You know, I bet it wouldn't take a whole lot to get a fabricator/welder in your area to make some nice safeties that could attach to the front posts, so you could have an open half-rack on the front (basically some "L" shaped metal in the right dimensions). I wouldn't use the Smith Machine part for anything except leg press if I were you, but if you have no other option I guess squatting and benching with it could be done if you restrict your range of motion and be careful. Eventually you are going to want to simply press with free weights, though.
    For $100 it's a decent deal for sure.
