Bosshogg - That is good that you can fabricate your own equipment. You might want to look at making the center piece of the farmers longer (between the loading pins), otherwise it makes it hard to walk/run with them without smashing your legs into the weights.

Awesome you have the capabilities to make your own equipment. I have had a cambered bar, safety squat bar and monolift attachment for my power rack made with the help of engineers from work. It definately can save a ton of money for a home gym. Let me know if i can give you any advice or help especially with dimensions.
