Thanks to all. Looks like the Power Rack is the way to go.

I've had the older model for over a year now (bought it used on craigslist) and it's great stuff. Can bench without a spotter and squatting is great. I've actually had to bail a couple of times during squat failure and the crash bars allowed me to do so safely without damage to house or body. hehe.

I also have the pulley attachments (upper and lower). I recommend them if you have a few extra bucks. Certainly not a requirement though.

Power rack, a bench and a barbell is all you need.

PowerLine PPR200X Power Rack is not a bad beginner's rack at all.

So I have opted out of Bally's for the time being and begun the creation of my home gym. In the garage, tiny space, etc. Anyone have any ideas about a small Smith type bench I could buy? Bench with some sort of self spotting mechanism?
