Hey That's another great idea! I didn't think of doing that. I was just figuring on making something from all the metal scraps I have laying around and some creative bending, banging, cutting, shaping and welding I found that I actually like to fab stuff when I did my frame
Your idea though would be much faster, starting with something that is already in the general shape.

Ha, yea... new business. Too bad there's no market.

Huh, I just googled it and your right. They are a lot cheaper than I thought. Whenever I thought of them, I always figured they'd be a $2000+ investment.

Then again though, even a $200 one, how much would I use the thing? and how good is any of the plastics?...
