    Default WFAC Cable Machines

    Rip, what type of rope do you use in your cable machines? I remember it was some kind of boating line?

    Our cables suck and are getting all bent and kinked up.

    It is a kernmantle line used for sailboat sheets. I use 7/16" for the stacks.

    We have 3 remnant selectorized machines. Two came from Mike Graham's legendary Texas Athletic Club in Austin, have been used by some very important people in the history of strength training and bodybuilding, and are museum pieces. The other functions nicely as a chinup station.

    I see. Very different story. Cool thing to keep some history around.
