    [QUOTE=TXBRASS;863626961]Ur correct....I just meant that working with smaller steel and detailed work it is easier FOR ME...ha! I guess it's what I know and am comfortable with....

    My dad does a lot of stainless work with a new TIG machine and he swears by it.... I've never attempted it, but he said its the way to go as far as versatility.....

    He (dad) just built me this 100% stainless steel BBQ pit using TIG and MIG set for SS.....

    Hey TXBrass, that's a beautiful job that your dad did on the bbq pit, something to last for years. As far as welding goes, I was taught on stick and am pretty good with it, I've also used a torch alot for brazing and cutting. I got a mig a little while ago and really like the fine, clean work it does. But I have to change my style over from stick to mig to make things look better. Your welds are nice. I've used a tig, but have no access now, and you need to practice on that to become proficient.

    Once again, nice stuff coming from you and your dad, kudos !

    You guys are making some fantastic stuff!! I'm in!! I've been making my own equipment for about 5 years now. I'll find some pics and post them up. I'm sure I've posted some of this equipment before, but I have some new things I've been working on.

    Completely agree. hardNheavy's GHR looks as good, if not better, than a lot of commercially available stuff.

    I'm very impressed.

    Thanks bro. I'll post some of the stuff I build out of left over material and also equipment that I don't paint up. It looks a LOT different, but it still serves the same purpose.

    My ****ty, dangerous wooden bar stands (squat or bench) broke the other day after a set of benching and dumped the bar onto the bench. I was unharmed.

    Wood is fine if you make it well. I didn't, and I knew I hadn't

    Rack mounted Reverse Hyper. It will adjust to almost every power rack, wide or narrow. The rack pictured is not a full rack, it was just something I used as a mock up.

    Check out the designs of the racks in videos I posted. The powerlifter that is training outside puts some serious weight on his day in day out.

    HardNheavy, I see you have two versions of the reverse hyper machine. How would you compare the workout effectiveness between the two?

    The only difference in the two, is that you can set the rack mounted version at an angle by moving one end of each safety bar down one hole. I didn't design it that way, I just noticed it could be done after the fact. LOL

    Belt Squat Platforms

    I made some platforms for doing belt squats. Here is what they look like in action:



    I was asked about the strength of these boxes. They guy who asked me about it thought that they might break should I use enough weight.

    I piled all the plates that I owned at the time onto one of these boxes, which was 465lbs, focused entirely on a 4.25 inch diameter circle in the middle of the box (which should be its weakest point). Here's what it looked like:



    More details and more photos are in the post, Squat Platform Load Test.

    Here's a photo of the interior of the box. Note that it's internally braced with 2x4s both at the top and at each side corner.



    Finally, here is a photo of one of the boxes by itself:



    Deficit Deadlift Platform

    I've also built a shorter platform for doing deficit deadlifts with my trap bar. Full details and more photos can be seen in the post, Trap Bar Squat / Deadlift Platform. Here are a few of the photos from that post:

    Im looking for more details on the one you built inside of the rack. You had a thread about the equipment you made a while back. Do you have a link? "Search" is not playing nice for some reason. I'm going to pry as much information on your equipment as I can if you don't mind.

    PM me with the info you want and I'll send pics and explanations. I've posted sporadically over the years on this site and I can't remember what I have posted and what I haven't. lol

    This is beautiful work! I especially like the dumbbell squat boxes. I could never do this....metal is much more forgiving. You screw it up, you cut it up and re-weld. LOL

    Reps on their way to HNH, OsoF, KBKB. The quality of your projects is awe inspiring.

    OsoF: What did you use for the upholstery? Is it some kind of wadding? It looks nice and dense. Good job. There seems to be a lot of talk on the sissy squat around here these days, I've never done them, am I missing out?

    HnH: I'm very impressed with your use of bearings on the bench press machine. Do they have a particular trade name? I'm interested in making a wrist roller set up with them one day.

    KBKB: Great work on the platforms, thanks for contributing them here. Crew number 14 is up for grabs if you want it.

    Thanks! Quarter inch thick felt pad layered on top of a onch inch foam for the backboard. Then i took a strip of the same felt pad and rolled it up. Was gonna wrap the rollers up with vinyl. But thought of the hassle and passed kn it. First time ever doing SSquats last night. Feeling it today: more hams then quads. Feels good and comfortable to do em. U Maybe missing out lol
