I decided to build my own because I wanted a unit that looked like my Gold Crown I. I already had the wood lying around and will be in it for about $300 in parts and supplies. I estimate it will take around 15 hours to build and paint. It's a fun project and I enjoy working with my hands and having the satisfaction I built it myself. I did the cosmetic restoration of my Gold Crown I, restored the Gold Crown Cue Rack and built a custom "Gold Crown I" light. Now I will have a Gold Crown Ball Polisher to finish it off.I can see where someone could build the Diamond Ball polisher cheaper and if you like wood working and motors and stuff, it's probably a fun thing to do. But in the end, the most you will save is about $150-200 bucks (8 ball polisher). The time and effort involved will lose you money. Unless like I said, you like that type of stuff.
