    I'm assuming you mean a preacher curl station. I'd look for stores around you, because the size and weight of most equipment will make the shipping costs 'true da roof'.

    A bench a curling team sits on? Between shots?

    Nice!^

    You don't need any other sites than craigslist.com and ebay. Check your local papers, and especially college papers. You don't need a preacher pad/curling station...you need a chin up bar! If I were you I would make a list of the equipment you need.

    The need list should start like so:
    Power Cage or Rack
    Utility Bench
    Standard Bar
    Standard Adjustable dumbbells(x2)
    Standard Weights (300lbs. at least)
    Chin up bar
    Exercise Mat
    Chalk

    It's your money but preacher pads are much cheaper than what you would pay for that cute little station ya want there.

    If you are limited on space then what equipment do you have?

    If you don't have room in your house, join a gym.

    (I live in Baltimore, and just sold my wife's bench/rack/preacher curl thing. Damn.)

    Come to think about it, where in Baltimore do you live. I can give you some gym suggestions.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Well, if you don't have time, that's that, I guess.

    Good luck.

    When you decide you are serious, I would suggest the Powerhouse in Golden Ring.
