I was given a BodyTech (by Formula Ventures which doesn't seem to be in business any longer) weight machine, but I don't have an owner's manual or any documentation with it. The model number is 95300-15. It looked like a pile of scrap metal when I got it, but I've managed to piece together the major components. A couple of the cables were cut when it was disassembled (I didn't see it until it looked like a pile of scrap metal), so I'll have to make a couple cables to replace them. The problem is that I have no clue how the cables & pulleys are supposed to be configured.

Anyone have a machine like this that could show me pictures or maybe suggestions as to where I might be able to get a copy of the owner's manual or assembly instructions? It has 2 weight stacks and 4 stations.

Thanks,
cm

I recieved one in the same condition and it took me a total of 4 1/2 hours just re-routing the pullies until they worked my machine is made by the same company Formula Ventures but its the 970 Dual Stack System think some pics of it would help?

I'm in the same boat as the other guy, and pictures would help me a ton.

My neighbor has one, all assembled and never used. Tell me where the model ID number is, and if it's the same one you have, I'll share pix or video

Dear Michael,
Do you have any pictures of BodyTech? I bought my Model 94800-10 at a garage sale and I would love to see how the cables and pulleys are arranged.
Please send pictures to Plumeriasweet@hotmail.com Thank you very much for your help!!

I just posted some photos of my bodytech 94800-10 here:

http://www.goattack.com/bodytech/94800-10.htm...

I hope they are helpful. I'd like to see photos of your completed gyms, just to make sure mine isn't missing any parts- though it does appear to be complete. I'd also like to see how others are getting a shoulder workout completed on this gym. The only thing I'm coming up with are exercises that use the low cable.
