Below is a list of the necessary materials and their approximate cost in 1998 in Holland.
You actually have to buy commercial sizes, in this case with the aluminium sheet it was 1000x2000. As you should be able to use this material to make at least 2 repiniques, only the material used was charged, not the whole sheet.
|Item ||Amount||Size||Approx. price (US$)|
|Aluminium sheet||1|| 1604x630x1 ||14.00
|Steel rod||1||ø 6, 6 m||2.40
|Steel wire||1||ø 3, 3 m||1.00
The skins were not included in the list, as it depends on where you buy them. I actually bought 2 plastic skins in Holland for about 20 dollars each to see how it would work. In Brazil, I bought a nappa skin for 22 dollars, which I am using now.
