My concern with building one is not the frame, but all the top rollers and anvils.

Heavy fabrication I can do.

My concern with building a lot of wonderful specialty tools is how much shop space I need to build to house these largely unused tools.
For one off's I can generally figure a work around or take the project to a place that has the tools needed.

Quite true. That is, in fact the reason I started down this path without first building or buying every tool I could conceivably need. Can't swing a cat in either my shop or home office now. Where will I put an English wheel?
