Great information here!

Using angle stock certainly would be cheaper, but not everyone has the
equipment to cut to length, drill/tap holes, etc...
I do not have those tools, nor access to a maker space that does, which is
why I ended up getting a openbeam "starter set" to build/experiment my man
portable IC7100 setup.
I like what I see in the openbuildspartstore!
