After studying all these posts it appears that I've run into many snags during my requisitions.

1. For some reason (where I live anyways), PVC 1/2" tees are difficult to find. HD and Rona only seem to have PVC tee with boxes which run about $2.88 here. 300 Ohm quotes the regular ones without boxes at ~$1.25. I haven't even found crosses yet..

2. I didn't realize how thick 6 gauge wire was, but I had some similar scrap metal and it is very difficult to bend. I'm thinking of using many coathangers and bundling them for thickness and sturdier-ness if needed (I'm only doing indoor attic). If I can't bend it something so thick, and I'm guessing cutting it would also be a problem without proper tools, what's the next best thing for material?

3. NARODs and NAROD reflectors are the same diameters in all the plans, should I try and keep them the same, or does anyone know the difference if one is thicker than the other? I'm wondering if, for instance, the reflectors need to be AT MOST the elements' diameter for optimal results.

Weird, I just got back from Lowes and those guys have all the PVC parts you can think of. Even the guys at HD said they don't make 'em. :confused:

And Metal Supermarkets, yes! Got some aluminum rods there, I just hope I can bend them without hurting myself. With minimal tools, I hope pure might and a few nails on a board can help me do the job.

I'm beginning to think this is a little more than I expected, but the thought of limitless free TV still beckons..
