Nebula Smith Machine
The Nebula Smith Machine is a free weight self-spotting machine that uses a new continual counter balance to bring the bar weight to 25 lb starting weight.
The Nebula Smith Machine is a free weight self-spotting machine. Using a new continual counterbalance to bring the bar weight to 25 lb starting weight. The continual counterbalance on the Nebula Smith Machine is a push pull system. The counter block that rides inside the smith frame.
This explosive movement on the bar, therefore the counterbalance to be pulled through this part of the movement. Therefore keeping for a smooth movement.
The counterweight on the Nebula Smith Machine will not bounce or travel slower. Therefore the bar this way or cause the cable to come off the pulley. It is simple, the cables attach to bar and the counterweight at the top & bottom. This creates a circle. Bar cable to weight, then 2nd cable back to the bar.
The Nebula Smith Machine has slack adjusters that pull cables tight to make for a no play in the system! The top head mount on the Nebula Smith Machine are laser cut ¼ plate which mounts the top pulleys & tracker rods for the sled.
- Counterbalance blocks of 2×2 steel welded to bearing tube with ¼ nylon strips. Equally screwed to them to slide on inside the frame tube.
- 1/4 cable connects counterbalances over a 4.5 pulley to the weight bar sled carriage. Concurrently via 4 cables to make the continues counterbalance system work.
- Large safety hooks for easy racking with a 1 3/16 painted and knurled bar.
- Bar racks on (9) pair of 1 TG&P 5 pegs that are drilled through and bolted in place on the mainframe of the smith.
- Bar ends go into a (2) needle bearing swivel mount held in place by a machined end cap.
- The weight tubes welded to a heavy 3.5 DOM. Henceforth welded to the 8 linear bearing tube making a wide bearing profile. This reduces nearly all side wobble in the bar.
- The sled travels on a 1.25 class L shaft with 0ver 70 of free travel.
- This smiths set up as a Vertical or on a 7 degree from vertical plane.
- This’ done by bolting on the rear foot in either the top or the bottom pair of holes.
- The front lower foot is made up of 2 lasers cut ¼ plates which mounts the lower pulleys & tracker rods for the sled.
- The lag pads at the bottom of the feet swivel for change from 7 degree to vertical and sit level on the floor.
