As before $200 for a piece of SS tubing was my only issue and I bought it some years ago
It must be worth it because I bought one, but was on the fence with the drill type. Thought about making one my self, just don't have a TIG welder

im not disputing the merits of a drive shower. We have imco drive showers. They work great. But thinking a drive shower is going to fix an inherent issue inside the drive is naive.

your drive shower wonít fix bad pre load, bad bearings, or bad gear sets.
