I have about 4-5 hours into this and a few dollars worth of soldier,flux, and mapp gas. All of the copper is recycled. It is far from the perfect repair stand, but it will suit me fine until I can afford to run with the big dogs. I would prefer something that folded up or broke down into a smallish package, but that isn't possible with what I had to work with.
