BB and Head tube centering?

Putting together a jig using 8020. Doing this for fun so would rather not spend a ton of $$$. Checked local for having some centering cones made, was nuts what they wanted.
Is there any reason I couldn't just use an old headset and external bottom bracket? Run rods through them and use collar clamps for location?
Or any other semi inexpensive ideas?

Listen to Joel.
Also, don't let the wrong size hole keep you from buying economically, it's a couple dollars to make them smaller and takes almost a whole minute to do. :)

I've also heard of small ball hitches and shower heads being used, if you really want to scrounge stuff up.
