As always it’s not very exciting,but I thought I’d throw it out there and maybe figure out how to post pics again .
I find my bumper plate storage racks are not very refined looking . The concept was great ,but they look a little cheesy on the top and bottom . Probably because I just used a 2/4 .
I had another idea in mind , as I wanted to be able to adjust the height , so I used 1/2” think iron welded to a piece of 2x3x1/4 angle iron .
To make it look better , I routed out the 2/6 vertical sections on the top and bottom in order for the angle iron to sit flush .
Then as I suspected, angle iron is not square on the inside corner, so I had to use a round off bit to remove a anall amount of material.

2nd pic is the old version . (I still cannot remember how David explained how to have text between pics )

First pic is the new one with machine feet . I haven’t tapped a hole since grade 10 , and back then it was in aluminum

Nice setup Rick looks great
Thanks guys and gals . Funny thing is I’ve got so much tendonitis in my left knee and my right arm that I can hardly use it .
Its more of a hobby building it than anything . I can still do lighter work outs , so not all is lost .
Unfortunately I’m not 58 anymore :D

Rick if your like me these golden years aren't all they're cracked up to be. Going to pt twice a week for bad neck and shoulder. I guess it's payback for all that fun I had when I was younger:rolleyes:
I broughtt a lot of this on myself . High speed dirt bike accidents are coming back to haunt me. Also I damaged my arms with years of heavy benching . Looking back I should have used dumbbells, as I wouldn’t have half the issues I have now .
To bad hindsight is 2020 . Geez thinking about it, everything associated with 2020 is bad lol

I'd say home gyms benefit most on free weights and they're quite affordable. I work from home, so home gym is my biggest wish. Once I finish my huge work project with the TheWordPoint team, I start thinking about home gym project. They're also versatile, a barbell, a basic adjustable squat rack, and a weight plate set and you're covered🙌 You can do all your squats, deadlifts, presses and rows with those

There more popular than ever since the China flu . I actually built it because I was getting sick far to often going to a public gym.
Actually never got sick for almost a decade since I quit going to our local gym , so it’s paid for itself imo .
Plus its fun upgrading

Between the knees and shoulder replacement I stay mostly on lighter weights and the elliptical these days. Nice job.
I had to quit ego lifting all the time. Haven’t even touched any dumbbells over 70 pounds since I got deathly sick last march.
Anythings better than nothing though
