Hi all, I know this is an open ended question thats hard to build. But in general terms how long does it seem to take the average person to gather all the parts, build, and make the first cut. Its seems to me that ordering a kit is a great convenience. Some claim a 2 hour build, so even a weekend or two would be fine with me. But I see people in here that take a year to complete a build. How hard is it to source, and buy your own parts? I can cut aluminum extrusions accurately, drill and tap and other minor tasks involved. I'm not really looking to save $100 or $200 by not going the kit route, and I do not want to fall into a months of trial and error and missed shipments or what ever else can go wrong doing a self build. So in general, how much time would you think you would save buying a kit? I am looking at the SparkConcepts new kit that is supposed to be available soon. I hear it is similar to the OX. Thanks very much for the read and any experience you can share with me.
