    Now to the technical ....did he have a pattern? Did he use metal gears or wooden ones? And where did he find the gears --IF he used metal?
    When my husband made my frame, he used wooden gears he made with his saw (this was years ago and it has since been destroyed by hurricane Rita). I don't think my DH would be up to the task of doing another one but it sure would be nice.
    Glenda Sue - Al found the gears and hardware in a kit on the internet and ordered it through Amazon. It is made by a company called Hinterberg (?) and it comes with the pattern and cut list for the frame. The gears are wood and have been cut on a CNC machine for accuracy. Al supplied the lumber and the conduit pipe that is used for the rollers. I used some pillow ticking fabric to make the aprons and we attached them with library book binding tape (I think it's better than duct tape for this). It took him a couple days to cut and assemble everything. He added a coat of Watco finish and that's it. He has a write up about the construction on his blog if you would like to take a look: http://sandal-woodsblog.com/2011/01/...uilting-frame/

    And - one could be built and shipped for cost . . . just saying. Anyone out there want one?
