I thought I'd mention this on the site since some people could likely make use of it.
My good friend Travis who owns the gym I train at does custom fabrication of gym equipment. He's trying to get his name out there, so the equipment he's making costs not much more than the cost of materials.
He does sleds, yokes, farmer's walk handles, and stuff like Pity was talking about in the shout box. I don't know if that was patented, but I imagine he would make the same thing for less than half that price. He's finishing up a pneumatic monolift for the gym right now. He has plans to make some barbells also.
So if anyone is considering buying some type of gym equipment or just wants him to price something, send me a PM or contact him through the gym website at http://www.stratiformstrenth.com
. His work is top notch and for the price it's an exceptional bargain.
