I am trying to make a pull up bar for my house. The one that was on the main page looks really good.

For a basic pull up bar, how far would you recomend making the bar from the wall? I weigh 190+ LB and didn't want to get carried away making it too far off the wall. I also didn't want to make it too close and end up remaking it again.

Neil, I'm no engineer, but you'll eliminate the sheer force entirely if you can mount it from the ceiling. I know that doesn't answer your original question, but if you have the clearance you should consider it.

Brad,

We had the CF Eastside bar custom-made by a local steel fabricator. More pics of the bar and links to their site are at www.crossfiteastside.com.

We have two wall mounted heavy bag hangers and bolted a 9ft steel pipe between them. It makes a great pull up bar. We can fit 3 people on it at once.

It cost about $150 for the entire set up.

Yeah, no eye protection is NUTS. I was hoping maybe there was something not obvious in the photo.

He has one, its just on the other table.

I see this all the time on the motorcycle build shows. It probably irks every metal shop teacher that sees it. Granted he is probably just tacking it versus laying down a bead, but still.

Closing the lids and looking away still allows UV in. Closing one's eyes will not stop a flying chunk of hot slag. (look by his chin).

He does make one mean pullup bar tho! Nice Work.
