For those of us who are less hands on. Where does one normally get metal strips and bolts and stuff to make battery cages? I checked out bunning but they didnt seem to have anything Id consider strong enough.

we have plenty of offcuts of 30 x 30 angle and bolts etc which would be suitable fos battery boxes.

As another option, I picked up a bunch of steel offcuts from Dicandilo's
Steel City the other day for $1/kg - cheap!

(They also have non-offcut steel there of course, pretty much anything you
might want)
