My son is taking a welding class and has decided to build a weight bench press. Needing some dimensions so I can draw him up some plans.

Height of bench you lay on?

Minimum and maximum height to make adjustable uprights?

Outside width of uprights so that bar will clear?

--

Or plans available on a web site. I Googled it with no luck.

Thanks in advance

Thanks, but they only show maximum overall height, width and length, which varies from design to design. I need more detailed info for best ergonomics so one is in best position.

height of the bench you lay on off the ground: 21.5 inches to top of padding

distance between the bar supports: 39.5 inches

height of bar off the ground: 42 inches


That should work for most people. if you're shorter than about 5'8", I might reduce that last dimension to 40 inches or so.
