I'm going to repeat something:

If it's within your budget, get the best one you can - like the one I linked earlier... or any of the other fine products mentioned here - but if not DON'T agonize over it. If you can't afford the "good one" get the cheap one. Get a used one. Borrow one. Go all MacGuyver - find a steel ring and use that. Copper pipe can work only need the rim so anything which won't melt or catch on fire and has a circular opening in the right size range (1/2" to 1.5" or so) can work - The important thing: Just start making spheres!

It's fun.

(and yes, within certain broad ranges, you get what you pay for)
