Re: Portable pull-up station - 4x4's, pipe, and carriage bolts

I like the idea of putting the flanges on the outside. I think I may do that. Certainly would be a lot safer. Thanks for the suggestion!

N/P, Jonathan. And hey, thank you for bumping this thread! I most likely wouldn't have seen it otherwise. Let me know if I can help you with anything else on this project. Good luck!

Re: Portable pull-up station - 4x4's, pipe, and carriage bolts

Hey guys..for those who have built one of these what are your stats...I am 6'4 225...Curious how stable these would be doing some kipping on them?

thanks,

I'm 5'8 and 145 lbs. So I'm not worried.

I'm not a big guy, Tony. 5'10", 166-70#. Even with violent swings, it appears sturdy. But you may want to take Mike's idea of using 6x6s instead of 4x4s.

I made a similar pull-up station a while back with pressure treated 2x8's and it was pretty sturdy and I am 225-230lbs. Since then I have created an all 1 inch galvanized pipe unit to save space and get the bar higher to hang rings off. If I made a wood one again I would go with a couple 6x6's for the mains to keep it extra sturdy.

How about directions on your unit. I would like to be able to hang rings as well...

Thanks, maybe a photo as well

Can you snap a photo of your pipe unit (wow that didn't sound good). Anyway, you know what I mean :-)

I am trying to build a pipe only setup also..

Thanks!
