As far as the cost goes, it is either time spent or money spent. Some times it is just better to spend the money rather than trying to piece something together and apply the time saved to getting more done. Even for a low budget guy like me the difference in cost between going to the steel yard and buying metal and coming home and fabricating the piece from scratch and buying and assembling it with a bit of trimming the cost difference may be worth it in the long run.

I've discovered one thing since I retired at the first of the year and that is some times having things ready made so you can just go to it rather than spend hours fabricating pretty much the same thing does have it's advantages. I don't have the energy I did 30 years ago nor does my back or knees like standing in one spot for hours on end. For those who are younger and working productive shop time means a lot when you only have a few hours at a time to work on the projects.
mr48chev, Thank you! You squarely hit the nail on the head! I'm a old Millwright Machinist, I make parts 10 hours a day, I really didn't want to crawl around making this stuff in my garage as I want to drive it this summer!!!
