    Nice work!

    Well done!
    Tom at West Cary Barbell is receptive to making these up for us however he won't be able to get to them until early March. We were throwing around ideas of doing ones that attach to each post so you don't have to worry about hitting your head on the post if you're leaning way into them.

    These are some other handles he has built like this...


    We would have two angled handles so you can move in and out to get the desired width for whatever you're doing.






    This one has straight handles.




    This pair has both straight and angled handles which is a design he doesn't recommend. It does provide a good example of his powdercoated finish though.

    Not sure what the price will be yet, and I'm sure that will depend on how many people are interested.

    Those are nice bars! I actually was thinking of making that style, only with telescoping tubing to get anyones desired width. But once I started drawing them up I started thinking that I would have to build two sections that drop into the rack. And since Ive never even made or attempted to make one, I figured I wouldnt push my luck and keep it a little more simple. The one I made turned out great though, it even fits better than the hooks that go to the rack! As far as hitting my face on the upright, I made sure I was far enough away to never come close to it no matter what angle I dip at. Heres a vid - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUOK8...ature=youtu.be

    Got my Dip Attachment painted. I used some appliance enamel on the main part and on the bars and rear handle, I used some Plastidip spray.

    Unless you were modifying that piece heavily I'm not sure it would be able to fit the OHDPR8 rack. There are no holes through the center of these upgrades, much like the Atlantis rack there are these sort of gun rack catches that hold the safety bars.

    I finally got my new Hammer Strength rack setup and am ready to start pursuing this again if there's any interest. I'm going to reach out to WestCaryBarbell again and see what comes back.

    If I didn't have a dip station, I would pursue having a local machine shop weld a curved handle on each Hammer Strength bar catch facing the rear of the rack as to not interfere with the bar (hook) which faces the front. For dipping, the bar catches would be placed on the rack's left and right front uprights which would in turn position the dip handle on each bar catch facing the outside front of the rack. Similar to Legend's but with the handle facing the opposite direction. Have you given any thought to this? I mentioned a local machine shop because if you went this route that would save the expense and hassle of shipping the heavy bar catches let alone the return shipping with the handles welded on.

    FYI I reached out to West Cary Barbell twice and he's totally swamped. He says he won't be able to do these for us. My ultimate solution was this... --> http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...post1096941523

    Not bad.

    I had a 10' piece of 1" ID black iron pipe cut in half and use two 1" to 3/4" reducing 90's, and a 3/4"x24" nipple across my safeties on my Parabody.

    Yeah I just ended up just buying one of the $99 nybb dip racks, its light enough to move around but pretty stable even for weighted dips.

    So I thought you guys might be interested in this. Got the idea from ExtremistPullup, but his pics disappeared. This is a no-weld solution you can do in your garage with minimal equipment. I got a 3' section of 2" x 2" x 1/8" steel angle iron ($10) and a 10' section of 1" id (inner diameter) "schedule 40" black gas pipe ($20). I had Home Depot cut the pipe in two 4' sections (they do it for free). I then used a skill saw to chop the angle iron into four 9" pieces. You need a $3 metal blade for this, not the general or wood blade that is on most skill saws. Then clean the last few inches of pipe on each side and the middle of each piece of angle iron with soapy water (dawn or the like, not your girlfriend's lavender bliss bullsh*t). Set the angle iron sections on your safeties across from each other and center the pipe sections on the angle iron. Mix up a pack of JB Weld ($5) and apply liberally to the contact points. I rolled the pipe around and put it on the bottom side of the pipe as well as used a plastic spoon to drip some in the void around the bottom of the pipe. This will need to sit on the rack for about 24 hours to cure, so do it on your off day. The result is bulletproof dip bars that will hold several hundred pounds before bending, and will not wiggle when you hop on them. Added bonus, the width is adjustable. You could potentially angle the bars for even more versatility should you desire. If you wanted to, you could get someone to weld the pieces together, but it isn't really even necessary. Also, this should work with any rack that has swing-in style safeties as well, although the length of the 1" pipe might be different.
