I keep thinking about building my first setup, but only because that's what everyone does. I'm really more interested in using the equipment than making it (sacrilege?) and buying is not out of the question if 1) the quality is sufficient and B) the price is not oppressive. I've read some derisive reviews here of the Devil Forge. Are there decent forges to just buy and use affordably? If building is the hands-down best way to go then I'll do it (and yes, I'll have fun doing it) but that's really not the goal.
