Has anyone built a steel frame from one of these kits? Seems like a cheap way to try your hand at making your own bike frame with your own custom geometry :D

It might be cheaper only if you were building a bunch of them and then selling them.

Not sure mdf is the best material for a frame-jig to be made from.
