I can rent a welder and I have been to fab school
. The cost is actually in the bender and all the dies neccesarry to use different size tubing. I can find a reasonably priced skilled tadesman to finish weld it. What I can save money
on is building, bending, notching, fitting, and tacking everything. As well as design... That is what also costs... I don't think I need help much with the design but I might cut it up and waste more tube than someone who does it alot. Plus my welds would not be as nice as someone who is currently welding every day.
