Anyone here fabricate their own equipment? I've made a atlas stone using the plaster over rubber ball method but that's about as far as my experience goes.
The owner of my gym was talking about getting some new equipment made (racks and such). It got me thinking. I've always wanted to learn to weld but haven't had much need for it, just something that I've always thought would be a useful skill. This might give me the excuse to purchase a welder and learn from some guys I know.
Anyone weld any racks, yokes, or farmer's walk handles? I was thinking a arc or mig welder. I've looked at hobart and miller but I think considering the limited use it's going to get a harbor freight or northern tool and it might even get the job done for cheap.
