Dipping Station?

hey all,

Has anybody tried making a dipping station (or whatever its called), just so that you can do some dips lol. If so, how did you make it?

Or alternatively is there anywhere cheap I can buy one from for my home gym.

Cheers

    I'm thinking about getting something like this in the near future, somebody posted on here before saying it was quite good, although if you shop around you can get it for much cheaper than argos are selling it for.

    I'm in the republic so our choice is a lot more limited and much more expensive than in the UK

    Get a decent powerrack - bodysolid are fine and put 2 bars between the safety bars. other than that make one from scaffold.

    i made my own dipping station.
    i found a bit of scaffold and cut that in half with an angle grinder thats my bars done .
    i went and bought 4- 8 foot 2x3s of timber and then you have to build a frame so the easiest way to explain it is that you have to build two u shapes.
    on the top of the u's you have to drill a hole in each end to slide the poles through, you should end up once the poles hav slid through with what looks like a square letter o.
    next you have to join it all together. at the end of one of the sides cut a piece of timber to your required width and screw it to both end bits of the letter o, put on at the bottom and one in the middle.
    lastly cut one more piece of timber and screw it to the bottom, undrneath where you would be dipping.
    if you've used long enough screws and enough of them that station aint going nowhere.
    tried to explain this the best i can but it probably looks greek to you.

    the one you linked to Dan, saw one go on ebay for £35 about a month ago, looked a bit more sturdy than that one too.

    always worth checking ebay for something like this.
