    We had one made in work recently in marine grade stainless steel box section. I have heard that it is best to get them powder coated also to prevent corrosion but they didn't bother doing that in my work. We have a mechanical workshop so it was made there so it cut down costs.

    As far as I know there is different grades of stainless steel some which corrodes easier than others. I know some people on UR complain about stainless steel tweezers rusting after being in salt water.

    i would go with normal box section steel and get it galvanised that way it should never rust. it also might be cheaper than making it out of stainless steel?!? then you could paint it black if you wanted (you would have to put a base coat of h primer on first to stick to the galvanised steel).
