A lot of home built equipment uses 3/4" pipes for weight stacks. The diameters of holes in the centers of weight plates differ. Make sure that a 3/4" pipe slides easily through a weight plate before stacking it. If not, ream the hole out a bit with a rattail metal file until a 3/4" pipe does slide through it. You don't want to place a 50 lb. plate over the weight stack of a machine you've just built only to have it jam on the threads at the top of the pipe.
