Well I posted a long time ago about the power rack I drew up in autocad. well I finally buckled down and built it. I was able to use a shop and get all the metal at their cost, and a friend that does a lot of work for the place I work did the complicated welding and bending of parts. I will post up finished pics later, working on the top of the bench next, and having a upholstery place finish it.
It is a typical powerlifter rack. Band pegs, pull up bar on the front, sumo base. After I get it set up I will be squatting pulling and benching like crazy in it. quite excited to use chalk and not get crap, and finally be able to get back to a westside style routine. Now I just need to buy an affordable bar and plates.
I have 9 hours of build time in it so far, plus 2 hours from the welder roughly, and him helping me couple minutes here and there rest of day while he was on other projects. And about 80-100 bucks so far in materials.
