Weight Bench (5 position,Flat/Incline) doubles as Patio Bench
DIY Portable Bike Repair Stand
Thanks afajarito! I finally got mine built :) I found that Officeworks sell the PA speaker stands new for $AUD 28.001" Galv pipe was tricky to find. Eventually found some at an irrigation supplier.However, the pipe wall thickness really called for some thinning down. To accommodate the 3/4" pipe slotted inside the 1" pipe, i used my Dremel with a small grinding wheel that fit perfectly inside the 1" pipe. For the 1" pipe that connects the T piece to the tripod, I made up a DIY lathe using my grinder, drill and some bits of timber to remove about 1mm. The stand works very well, complements to you afajarito!Perth, Western Australia.
This is very cool! I might try this..Also got a lot of suggestions from http://adjustableworkoutbench.com/
Hi everybody!I just got the idea of this project and decided to make it; however I couldn't find the "pony clamp" in my local shops, there is also no route to get things online from "amazon" & "e-bay" in my country because of some money transfer sanctions, so I decided to design a new clamp out of pipes and a tee (I made a tee as a clamp by cutting it and adding lockings to, and use a 70cm~28" pipe as holder).I mounted the whole idea altogether, but it seems not to have balance and the thing is collapsing to the bike side; I don't want to drill and add weight(s) to the other side of the holding pipe to get balanced, as I may demount e.g. wheel, crank or other parts of the bike during repair time that way I have to relocate the lever.what would you recommend at this situation?P.S. I also tried to modify the tripod via changing its' pods length, but it seems not to work too.regards,M Meshkini
It looks nice for light weights but I wouldn't use this for heavy weights. How much weight can two 1x2's at an angle with holes drilled through them support?
Thanks for this! - AglG
The instruction diagram appears to be a little confusing. The instruction calls for the 45" 4X4 piece with a1/2 deep dado cut and width of 3 3/8" The problem is that the post which will be installed in this opening is 4X4. Further more the picture shows the dado cut to be much deeper than 1/2 inch. What am I missing here? - RichardW171
It was corrected; if you hover over your cursor over the rectangular box inthe picture it will tell you the correct cut which is 1-1/2 inch deep.4x4's are not exactly 4-inches wide on each side, these is the"nominal" number, after drying and milling the actual size normallyshrinks to 3-1/2 x 3-1/2, there is no industry standard and could vary. Afterprep sanding, I would guess 3-3/8 will give you a nice snug fit. Carefullymeasure the post dimensions you got to make sure. - AglG
