I always wanted a cable crossover machine but never had the space for one and they cost big money.
I found a relatively inexpensive cable set up called the Spud Econo Pulley. All I did was add two pieces of angle iron and 2 Spud Econo pulleys to my powertec rack and I had a Homemade Cable Crossover Machine:
I started with 2 pieces of angle iron that measure 2 inches by 36 inches, 1/8 inch thick.
I drilled two clearence holes in the angle iron to mount it to the power rack. One hole is for the existing powertec bolt and the second hole is for a bolt I added to the end of the angle iron.
The second bolt is 3/8 by 3 1/2 inches long and goes through the angle iron and through the upper support of the power rack and held in place with a nut and lock washer. I needed some additional washers as spacers behind the angle iron.
Final step was to spray paint the angle iron with a grey primer paint.
Here's a short video showing the Homemade Cable Crossover Machine in action:
