The only thing is that I don't really trust a welder to mount the motor as he might not think about motor alignment hmm...
I got mine at home depot and orchard hardware, and a steel yard in my city, but you could easily make do with just stuff from hardware stores. I just wanted 1 1/2" square steel tubing and they only had up to 1 1/4" at the hardware store.
