my friend wanted a right angle gear drive ,was quoted I think 200£.in aldi he found a cutter grinder 15£  stripped it and inside was exactly what he wanted complete with all the bearings . other.useful bits were kept and the rest binned .Ihave been looking at these tools in a different way now.  best wishes maurice.

You also need to look at Aldi adn Lidl as a source of material as some oft their products are a cheap source, think outside the box as it were.
Also try car boots, I used to think it was a bit off to just hacksaw something up for the brass etc, but with the prices of stock you just have to do it!
