For a cheap very good setup board go to either of the Big Box stores...i.e. Lowes or HD...
Ask if the have a good size scrap piece of 3/4" MDF this will work great for a set-up board as it is very flat and should only cost you like 2-3 bucks...But do not get it wet i.e. set your drinks on it...I would use some sort of polyurathane sealer first just to keep those peasky bubbles from accuring or be creative and paint a couple thin coats of paint...but you will still need to seal it... Other wise you will be very unhappy with it.
Save your money for a PT as they are very expensive now...The Lathe you can pay some one a couple bucks or buy some one a coke at the track to cut yours for you for now until you can save up again.
I use this board as many tracks pit spaces are not level or even kind of level and I like to setup on a level surface.
Here is a link.
Also this seller is top notch and always ships ultra fast...
I get my stuff next day every time...Unless of coarse of a weekend.
Hope this information is helpful.
