    I feel like the only thing missing from those Kabuki plates is a warning clause explaining the dangers of weightlifting, with a cast in symbol of two men holding hands and wearing PPE to promote...

    I've never known powdercoating to be cheap. Of course it doesn't hurt to call and ask, but to give you an idea, my father had a simple 4' length of 4x2x.120" wall rectangular tubing (with four 1/2"...

    I know it's not ideal, but could you add some standard J hooks (your rack looks like 2"x2"???) and drill the rack where needed? Heck, you could probably even drill holes where needed and just add...

    I'm just finishing up the safety arms for my new squat rack and I added 1/4" UHMW material on the top and outside of the safety arms, but I also have strips of 1/2" stall mat that I cut to shim the...

    I'm working on mounting some lights to my new squat rack right now but I haven't totally figured it out yet. It's hard to make lights blend into the rack, so it doesn't look added on or tacky.

    That's a total bummer! I've noticed in recent years that cheapie spinlock handles can vary greatly in quality, and tolerances in the threads (on the handle or spinlock nut itself) aren't machined to...

    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,...

    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...

    Something along the lines of the matting in the link below is the only other thing I could think of besides rubber mats (these are portable too), and there may be a more inexpensive alternative if...

    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....
