The dip belts I listed cost a fortune by the time they get shipped over here, so most people just make do with the leather ones instead.

    Here are some fractional plates made out of speaker magnets. I ripped these out of a car about 12 years ago for this purpose but never bothered to paint them up. These ones are a kilo each but I have some smaller ones somewhere. Total cost for 6 fractionals; £5 and a bit of work breaking them away from the speaker cone. If the speakers are already damaged, then the scrap yard won't charge you hardly anything for them.

    An oly bar


    Stored on my power rack
    That speaker weight is brilliant!! Wow, some of the stuff people come up with is inspiring to say the least!

    I like the dip belt too. It reminds of what I use for my RH strap. Ain't no way I'm paying $30-$50 for something I can get at the hardware store for about $6.00. lol

    Carabiner- £1.50
    8mm short link chain (different chain in pic)- £5.00

    An overkill dip belt for less then half the price. It can obviously be made a lot cheaper by buying thinner metal hardware, but wheres the fun in that.
    That looks great. How did you sew it together.
    If God had wanted us to be weak, He wouldn't have given us iron.

    I'm a dab hand with a needle and thread.







    ...actually its just a 1 metre lifting sling used in construction/auto/transport trades. Its 90mm wide which spreads the weight nicely on your back. The ridiculous weight limit is only a fraction of what its tested to, so it is damn strong and well up to the task.

    Sorry guys...Been on honeymoon in USVI for a week so playing catch-up now.....REALLY like this piece!

    Some of this info is on other threads, but this is a good place to consolidate DIY projects.
    The object is a pad that fits on the end of a dumbbell handle to protect the lifter's thighs when setting up for a lift.

    Very nice. The version you posted earlier (elsewhere) was slightly different, wasn't it?

    I think sherman should get a crew number.

    Thats a big ask for a DIY project but I too would like to see some pics of that. Heres a link that goes about it a slightly different way from the norm. This is one of the most inspirational blogs on the net for homemade gear. http://tsampa.org/training/blog/archives/2005/07/ (scroll to the bottom for decline bench setup).

    I made this FID bench a few years ago, but being that I already have a separate leg extension machine, I didn't put one on. It would be fairly easy to do, but I'm not a big fan of extensions. lol Being that I don't have any dumbbells, I don't believe I've ever used this thing. It's looks nice taking up space. LOL

    It looks great. I'm very impressed with your work.

    Great bench HNH, I like the design. How did you manage to work out all the angles for it?

    Really it was just trail and error on the angles. I did a lot of cutting and spot welding until the angles all worked out. I didn't make very many of these because it was one of my more time consuming pieces. :/ I could actually make a RH much faster than this thing. LOL

    Thanks bro. You've made some fantastic things yourself. I'm enjoying seeing what everyone has built and I've gotten some really good tips in this thread.

    I have set myself the challenge of building a leg press-esque machine for as little as possible. I have also decided that it shall have a footprint of less than 2 square metres and be foldable to save space!!!

    I have a few ideas in my head at the moment.

    Bloody hell fishpat, is that even possible? What style are you going for; sled, leverage, or one of those ones you get underneith? Are you making this out of wood? I can't wait to see this mate, this may just be worth a trip to cambridge to try it out.

    It will be very simple and definately 95%+ wood. I also want it to have as little mechanical advantage as possible due to limited amount of weight in plates.

    I'm sure you know what you are doing with this, but keep in mind that if you are limiting the mechanical advantage, then you will have to beef it up a lot if using wood.

    I would never get in or under anything I built unless I was damn sure it was 50% safe!

    Quick setup chain hanger

    Here's another one I posted in a different thread.

    It's a chain hanger rig that gives you quick setup for any chain starting height you want. You can leave the rig connected to your bar even for lifts where you don't used chains. With a fish scale you can easily weight the chain load at differing heights.

    The key hardware part is a "Rope Ratchet" which is rated at 150 lb working load.

    Please excuse my wimpy chain - demo purposes only.
