    Wizbang works great [​IMG] Did 32 birds in less than 4hrs. put wheels on it it helps alot, we used those trailer thinges that you move snowmobiles around by hand. makes a big difference

    I'd say to just buy the Whizbang book. Unless you're really good at building/designing, it's well worth the $20, especially considering you're spending about $300 to build it anyway. The book is great, and very detailed.
