I would recommend shop built ones, but f you have to buy getting this kind would be better than this style. the reason why is the gate design. The one with the gate that slides all the way across the body won t have the dust build up problem that plagues the second one. On it the dust can gather in the back 2 corners where the gate slides in and prevent it from closing completely; thus it leaks. The are remedies, but why screw with them…just get some like the first ones (or build them yourself).

So I’ve seen many of the homemade ones. For the quantity I’m looking at the cost isn’t a huge factor. Ironically I bought my collector used and I believe I got a tote with some of the bad gates you showed.

You suggest homemade ones, do you feel they perform better?
