    Well, I know we all like "part-time" Mech more than "retired" Mech.. so anything you decide on will be much appreciated here.

    I have a feeling your belt squat gizmo will be a hit..

    He called it a gizmo mech. Sounds insulting, you should put me in line in front of him.

    I either timewarped through this or I was broke at the time, because I don't remember it happening.

    I’m baffled how those didn’t go quick. If I had a rack they worked on I would have been first in line.

    Actually feel the same way and Mech did offer them to me. was a stupid move on my part. My only consolation is that my rack is right up near the ceiling so maybe it wouldnt have fit!

    Honestly, the indexable chin up attachment is one my favorite equipment for back work in my gym, way better than regular chin up bar. My only regret is not buying a second set as the first one is on my functional trainer and i would like to have a second set on my rack so i could leave fat grip on one set and regular handles on the other ... I did not use my regular chin up bars since i got these

    looking back through this thread i am really kicking myself in the ass for not buying everything Mech has offered in the past. i was lucky enough to buy a set of mono's off another member and the quality and thought put into them was outstanding

    I feel like the resale on the ML mono hooks alone will be pretty damn good, especially if its to someone on this forum

    Depends on your location.. wouldn't want to ship them badboys. But yeah, the right buyer would (and should) probably pay retail.

    I think my keyhole Rogue Monster Monolifts are probably worth more than my rack at this point. They are so nice and pretty rare, from what I remember. I'm stuck with my rack FOREVER due to those beauties. Almost any time I post on IG, people ask me who built my monolifts and if they can get some. Ha.

    Mech's monos are the reason I'm never upgrading my rack.

    I’d pay enough for a used pair that would fit 3x3 w/1in holes that someone could buy a new rack, retail, off the transaction.

    So I finally put my inverse curl back together after sandblasting off the original spray paint job and powder coating it a few years ago. Also zinc plated the selector backbone. I'll test out the new knee pad in a few days.




    Last step is I'd like to vinyl cover the rear roller pads. The top one is actually from a commercial leg extension machine. Ordered it as a replacement part from distributor (wherever Alex got his leg extension, it's the same company). Canadian, so cheap shipping. I noticed later they actually distribute the wsb machines up here also, so I probably should of tried to grab the actual pad. But I bet it's 3x the price. This one should work fine.

    The locking pin wouldn't be ideal, you'd have to sleeve part of it and insert it from the rear (no joke). But yes, it's possible.

    I'd consider selling my 3x3, 1" monos but I'm pretty firm at $10,000 and you cover shipping

    Why , are you planning to replace your legend rack with Sorinex Apex rack with FCC, Lat pull down and Jammer arms?

    Even getting 10K for monos would still be hard to justify Sorinex prices. Also, I still have an emotional relationship with my current rack. I think my wife is jealous

    Hey guys, I finally assembled everything. It looks so beautiful. I'm very happy with the end result. I'm also glad to have listened to y'all and went the hard route and spent a day building the platform. It looks so much prettier than if it was on bare concrete.

    I assembled it according to y'all's tips. Partially tighten all bolts, then load up the rack with weights. I loaded 2 barbells, one on the J cups, one on the safety straps. Both weighed about 500 pounds each. In addition, I also put about another 450 pounds on the weight pegs. Only then did I use a ratchet and wrench to fully tighten each bolt as hard as I could. So my question is this: is it normal for a rack of this size to sway when I shake it side to side? Or if I"m doing muscle ups on the pull up bars, it's okay that it's swaying just a little? It makes me feel a little uneasy, but if it's normal, that'll put my mind at ease. Anyways, here are the pics below:
