I agree with Mike. Used racks are usually just as functional as new racks only may have cosmetic flaws. Look around and make offers. Worst they can say is No.

See youtube for homemade rack examples if you decide to try DIY racks. I did the DIY route before to save money, and I was never truly satisfied. Now I have a small used "professional" setup. I thought I was paying too much for a rack when I first bought it. Now, IMO totally worth every cent. It is portable, light-weight, can be taken apart if needed, easy to clean, easy to replace heating elements if ever necessary, etc. Way better than heavy wood racks. Again, IMO.
