Howdy from West Texas

Recommended Posts

Jack Green

Hello everyone, a new old guy here; ranching furiously in West Texas. An avid lifter, I've been gathering 'stuff' for a long time; since the early 1980s. I'm interested in many aspects of our game but, especially love the hardware. Counter sales auto parts for many years in between dance bands: rock, country, jazz. Gunsmith in Houston, Tx for nearly 25 years. I guess I'm still a parts guy; DIY T-Bar row from caster and plumbing nipple.

Hi Jack. Welcome to Iron History.

Nice ingenuity on this.

I have one that is free standing that can be weighed down with plates and one that can be attached to a rack.  Sometimes I use mine with just the barbell and alternate grips and I also use a T-bar to attach to the barbell that I got a while back.

Thanks Joe S.

   I had a plate load Pro-Maxima for a while; once you stepped on the diamond plate, it did not move. With the spring snap-link carabiner on the current setup, I can use different handles.

Greetings from Germany by Wolf. TX reminds me had a customer from Houston, real estate bigshot whose family is in the "money lendng biz" for 4 centuries. :)

When I met him I could not say if he was 70, 85 or several 100 years old. Just kidding a lil bit here but he had a spooky aura.
