Rolling steel bar

Hi Group, I am trying to find or make an inexpensive ring roller to create various radii out of steel bar, up to 3/8"thick x 1 1/2 " wide to use for exterior gates. I will only do a few a year so I hate to spend $700 or so for the rollers I have been able to find at different tool sites on the net.
Has anyone out there built there own?, or know where I might be able to come across some plans for one? How about where to purchase a cheap ring roller with the capacities I require?

thanks for any advice, Kim

I believe harbor Freight has a bunch of knockoff tools just for that. Lots of guys on the Hobart forum make or modify tools just for this. You can do a search there. http://www.hobartwelders.com/mboard/
