    Thank you for the replies. I wasn't really sure if tnuts would be strong enough, even when inserted into a 2x4. I might just go ahead and drill/tap the nuts myself, or possibly use some flange nuts...
  • Ideas for fastening a squat rack to platform

    I am going to be fastening my new Titan squat rack to the plywood platform I built years back, and honestly, I'm kind of lost on how to go about this. The setup is indoors (in a carpeted bedroom) and...

    I made something similar several years back, except I used 3/8" plate that was around 6" diameter. I made them over a decade ago, so I don't recall exact dimensions. I drilled the round plate for...

    I train in my bedroom and the house has a crawl space underneath. I'm going to add some jacks and support under the house when I install my new squat rack, and I'm cautious when doing heavy lifts off...

    Thanks, but it's not really what I'd call impressive. I just happen to be bored and have a lot of time on my hands. It would probably be much more impressive if I finished the entire project, and...

    So I ended up getting a random email 2 hours after my last post here, stating that my order has shipped. The package arrived 2 days ago (to my surprise) and for the most part, everything looks good....

    This is the same rack I have. It's not the king of dumbbell racks by any means, but it was (and still is) cheaper to buy than for me to build from scratch, and it's more than strong enough and has a...

    Looks like you can use it for more than benching. Also looks quite simple to duplicate at home for a fraction of the price. Cool idea for simple equipment-less workouts, nonetheless....

    I don't even eat turkey, but I use an electric knife for quite a bit of upholstery work. A long sharp knife works good too, just not for rebond. Angle grinders with a sanding disc work well on that...
