where could i get this
anyone know any online place I can get just a wide grip pull up bar?
I have been looking and cant find any on ebay or anything like that
I am building a home gym and I have most of the other equipment I just want the bar so I could hook it to a beam in my house to do some on

Your local Home Depo or plumber's supply company. Just get a 4' or 5' pipe, bend the ends to whatever angle you want, and bolt it to whatever, and there you go.

Any plumbing supply or hadware store will have this stuff from fractions of inches to 2-3 inches in diameter.
Pipes and nipples
And this stuff is generally cheap...
Just the MacGuiver in me chiming in with his 2 cents

what diameter did he choose
and how the hell is it attached to the beam?
maybe you can somehow describe it for me

I'll bet that if you went to a Home Depo and told a salesguy there what you wanted (maybe draw a picture of a chin-up bar) he'd be thrilled to figure out exactly what you need. Most of the guys there are like that -- very knowledgable and helpful.
If it was me, though, putting a chin bar on a wood beam, I might use a couple of heavy-duty screw-in hooks they used to hold bicycles off the floor in garages, then put the bar across those . . . like this:
Another simple approach would be a couple of long U-bolts like this (side view):
| wood |
| | |
| beam |
and put the bar ^
in right here |
There's lots of ways to do this . . . your Home Depo guy should be able to help . . .
