I'm still in school and don't have enough time, otherwise I would of sold these. Here in Langley, people sell these for $30 each and the top covers (with metal) for $25. I would make a huge profit but my time is a huge concern. I am thinking of making some in the summer when I'm free and sell them afterwards. These local suppliers rip people off IMO!!
It looks like the board that catches the debris is right next to the landing board. When you pull it out it may jam or squeegee all the debris off the board. If you lower the board down 1/2-3/4 and then put a stick on top of the board below the landing board you won't have that problem. It will also allow you to use a plastic tray on top of the board.
