The bench took me about two hours to assemble without help using a socket with a ratchet handle, two Allen keys with a ratchet handle, Phillips screwdriver, small hammer, the very good instruction sheets, box cutter and very good small parts blister pack. The ratchets speed up the assembly dramatically. A dead blow hammer would have been helpful to mount the foam roller end caps and the curling station handle pin. The two pins use to secure the bar rests at the squat stations are of poor quality and need to be check frequently to make sure they have not walked out during use. Also, the pin for the curl station required a hammer to install and will be very difficult to remove when removing the curling handles for different setups. Four washers were missing and an Olympic sleeve was cracked. The washers were easy to source locally. A call to Marcy customer service and the Olympic sleeve is on the way. I may look into locally sourcing some better pins for the squat station and the curling handles. Overall, I think that the bench will prove to be very good for a home gym.
