Is there any plans or instructions on how to make a mma cage. the gym I go to is finally moving out of their space and into a full time gym.
And we want a cage.
Otherwise buying one will set us back bout six grand.

Yeah the lads googled but aparently didn't find anything they were happy with. but for 20 bucks that is posibly worth a look.

20 gets you the blueprint, not the cage, there where some ads for me (not sure if they are location specific) on that site for used cages that seemed reasonable

I spent the $20 for the blueprints a few months ago; here was the conclusion: it was just as expensive to build it ourselves from parts as it was to buy one from zebra mats, once we had a the bulk discount factored in from zebra...
The steel and custom machining needed to make a cage is expensive.

We built our own cage. I hope you have a good welder with an open mind.

how much did it run in materials? When we looked at that option, the posts and chain link (coated) alone were expensive enough to make the savings (about $800) not worth it.

Our cage was not done to our specifications. It was done with triple redundancies. So we ended up 8K in for a 22 foot hexagon before getting pads and covers. The we paid extra to have an elevation possibility.

Gotcha; so doing back of envelope math, assuming your redundancies were about 2k, then a normal version is 6k, which is abut what it costs to buy one...

I think the average 22' is about 12K.
