it seems pretty easy to make and i cant believe its so dam expensive for one I do admit the one i will make wont look as fancy as i dont have a cnc machine or a lathe in my room here i have soe 10mm thick plate some ali tube and 1.5m long stainles solid 1" bar and some 10mm threaded bar and 2 blocks (square) solid stainless enough i think to make 3 maybe 4 sets.

If you could get me the measurments point to point I would be in your debt :D
