I'm making the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. I dont have a lot of tools, and i'm trying to build it on the cheap. Here's a picture:

Here is a very popular Portal Gun someone made, and it comes with instructions. I'm sure you can modify it all so it fits your price range.

We are in the same boat, my friend. Here, have a few more links I've found in my travels. (That said, Volpin's model is far and away the best one and if you're anything like me, you'll spend a long time pining for it regardless of what you actually go with.)

In no particular order:

They all have their pluses and their minuses. I'm considering smooshing a hybrid together from all of them, honestly.
