Alright I started building my tooth bar monday afternoon. First is the piece of 1/2"x3"x70" piece of steel for the bar and side pieces. It was $24 at the local foundry. Ill try and keep a running total on price if someone is interested in building their own. I got the teeth and shanks off ebay for $198. This was the real expensive part. But that was including shipping and these things are HEAVY. That also included the pins to hold the teeth on. So I have $222 in it so far. A comparable bar from what I found is $325, so im in the green $103 so far compared to buying one.
