I have access to a welder. We all have access to a welder.

What's the point if all you want/need is one basket that will cost a couple of hundred?

Notwithstanding all the extras also required (nets, cables, ties) - it comes with warranty and normal conusmer protections?

At the end of the day he has made a product that is well made and suitable for the job, he will also back the product and if there are issues will resolve them.
The product costs a sum of money with which every person has the right to buy or walk away from, on top of that there is development costs, manufacturing costs, advertising costs etc
So yes you may be able to make one cheaper in your garage with a welder, but the time taken to get materials together, take measurements, build paint etc is it worth it for a one off? Many would think not and buy one Thumbs Up

I don't have one because I have a D5 and he does not make one for the D5, but if he did and it fitted the purpose for me, then yes I would buy one Thumbs Up

my problem is that the solution I've come up with is (aside from being Censored brilliant ) is soooo simple I really can't think why no-one else would just do their own.

so as a potential source of income it's probably not going to get off the ground.

mind you ... D5 version - aimed at people with more money than sense - I'd only need to sell 3 a year to have a decent income. Whistle

These ones, as I understand it, will "drop down" so they can be loaded.
