    Nice job and work !
    Not knowing the wall thickness of your square tubing.
    I will say this though ,being of a engineering background.
    you could have a safety problem with the adjustment holes that close.
    The tubings lateral strength could be a problem with extreme weight above the fine hole adjustment.

    I'm sure you thought of it though before building
    again nice work .

    it is 11ga tubing. we have the exact rack in our gym and have had no problems. we use the rack pretty heavily so I am comfortable that it will hold up. with it being tubing, the safety pin would be in a quasi double shear at each upright. The safety pins and rod for the J-hooks are 5/8" CR.

    I typically powdercoat almost all of my pieces. The black pieces in this one are a black wrinkle powder. The coach had a set amount of funds to work with hence the paint. It definitely would have been a lot easier though. The one advantage of paint is he can go to Home Cheapo and get a rattle can of rustoleum white to touch things up.

    All future racks will be powder, I know where my strengths are and painting isn't at the top of that list
