Never been there but I understand the motivation to build bigger and better tools using whatever resources are affordable. Over time, I believe shop-made (or modified) equipment can be superior in many ways to mass-produced equipment as long as one keeps looking for ways to improve the designs.

The biggest advantage of shop-built items is that sourcing replacement parts is rarely an issue.
