you can order coil housings from Bulgaria or Russia or States
in the beginning I ordered a couple and then started making my own.  its a lot of prep work but its much more fun to be able to make your own
build you own vacuum table
google - vacuum forming coil housings
for the handles/stems you can use aluminium tubing,  graphite tubing or glasfibre tubing which you can get locally
