Starting Strength Power Rack

Anyone know where to get the kind of power rack pictured in the Starting Strength book? Most racks I can find look deeper than those. A shallow rack would fit my needs better I think...

Re: Starting Strength Power Rack

If I remember correctly I read that Rippetoe had those built custom.

If you go to the ************.com website (the site is not WFS, especially not Rippetoe's stuff!), go to the forums, look for the coaching Q & A section, go to Rippetoe's Q & A forum, and search it for "power rack" or "power cage" or "squat rack" or something like that, you will probably turn up the relevant post where he talks about it. I would say it's been in the past 6 months, I recall he was telling someone what size steel channels and size and spacing of the holes in them.
