    Powertec workbench half rack thickness vs standard attachment sizes advice wanted

    https: //powertec .com /products/workbench-half-rack-yellow?variant=39976346517642&currency=USD&utm_med ium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag _organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&gclid=Cj0KCQjwhq aVBhCxARIsAHK1tiNgDj2z0BVRkygtd3-Lk17llfKOkNUWD0L2sDG_LYgYg2GQ2O-IUaAaAt32EALw_wcB

    So I was looking at this, adn although it would be a while until I could afford it, I was interested due to the dimensions. It's size, especially the only 36 in length/depth would make it one of the very few things I've seen that would fit in the limited space I have. However, the info I got on it says "Our racks use 2 5/8" tubing, with a 1” holes". Looking at different attachments such as longer spotter arms on amazon, I noticed that they seem to only come in a few sizes, 2x2, 2x3, 3x3. I'm not sure if one of the 3's would somehow work on this rack still since it's sort of close (mostly feel like not but may as well be sure), or if the 2 5/8" means it's in a weird in between sizes thickness, and that if I ever got it I'd only be able to use Powertec attachments specifically sized for it.

    Does anyone have any experience with this one? Or does anyone know any other options of this size or smaller that would be an alternative choice?

    You'll likely only be able to use powertec attachments with that rack.

    here's a good guide for power rack attachments compatibility

    I had an older model PowerTec full rack and the tubing size was non standard on that. I bought a landmine/T-Bar row attachment from NY Barbells which was adustable, but still too small to fit on any of the posts. I do think that PowerTec has started producing more attachments, but like Bigx5murf said, you're probably going to be stuck using their attachments.
