I actually got a pretty good deal on it, but the owner of the company that built it for me said there was no money in it for him to start offering it as one of his product line.

Nice idea and thanks for sharing. I would love to know more about the size of the steel used and lengths, etc Also how you secured the base, size of the hole, etc.
Thanks again, and 73,
