I’m in the process of building the machine using 25.4mm steel tube from Bunnings (major Australian hardware store chain, similar to Lowes or Home Depot in USA).

I bought 7 x 100 cm lengths to make a machine 100 cm x 80 cm. The short lengths are easier to transport and less likely to have been bent during storage and transport.

Printing in ABS and using a combination of sanding/filing plus scaling in slicing software to get a good fit.
