? Buying your box section steel

Box section steels cheaper than you may think, if you find somewhere local, which size you buy ?or what?s available? is up to you, but I used 0.8 of an inch and 0.5 inch, the 0.5 is for sliding into the inside of the 0.8 so?s you?ll be able to adjust the height easily.

? Triangle plates

While your at the iron mongers, you?ll need to also pick up an off cut of 2mm thick plate 12x12 inch, you?ll probably be able to find a suitable piece in there of cut box ?all iron mongers will have a scrap box that you?ll be able to rummage though and probably wont cost anything either.
