    1. measure and drill pilot holes (small, 5/32" as an example) on each side of upright
    2. go rent magnetic drill. You could try it by hand but you're only doing this once, do it right.

    Take bar apart and bring shaft to machinist with a lathe. Have them cut 0.020" or so off the diameter where there's knurling. Test grip and adjust if more is needed.

    They went the same way as sorinex for the attachment. But why not use their own drop-in system? I still haven'f figured out why they bother with the keyholes if they can't actually make anything...

    Thanks. I often forget not everyone on here is falling apart just trying to find new ways to stay in one piece a bit longer and squeeze out a PR every once in a while :)

    So we scrapped some machinery at work and one of them had a 20' length of 5.5"OD, 5/8"wall tubing. Cut myself some 2' sections and deburred the ends. Took me a while to get rid of the 1/8" layer of...

    No such creature exists without paying for large batches (1000'+). Also, UHMW is extruded in tubing sizes, not pipe sizes. Use PVC, furniture grade, pipe. Select proper SCH (wall thickness), and as...

    No, the fab part is what I lack time for. I'd rather design parts for someone else to fabricate, if that was possible.
    Thanks

    It's not. It's cheaper and they're trying to justify it with some bs marketing. Same thing with the new Marss bar pad. Just inferior all around.

    Lol at this thread still going. Seriously, that rack is terrible. Did you miss post about the northern lights option in Canada? Close to a R3. MUCH better than the channel rack.

    I have a clone of that harness. The top pegs are handles (much easier/safer than holding bar), you don't load the bar there. Bar goes on bottom pegs (zerchers) or the set above them (front squats).

    I haven't really put much thought into it because I realized roller cups would be a real pain with my buffalo bar (my hooks are narrowly spaced, I grip wide). Would make loading the bar a real...

    The spring return is nice, if it's consistent and reliable. But the arms are VERY wide. No reason they can't bring those down to 1" wide, which is what most actual monolifts measure. And they seem...

    Wrong forum. But at 45 I'd get your hormone levels checked before you go right to "I'm not eating enough to increase mass".

    Yep you're right, deleted my previous post. It probably makes it just short enough that it can be boxed up instead of put on a pallet. Also seems to be a LH thread on one the sleeves, not sure why.
