I used PROMEGA coupled Reticulocyte Lysate. It´s called TNT and does 
transcription and translation in one tube. 
It worked really fine (To come first: I´m NOT from PROMEGA!). Since 
it is not very cheap we also tried to rebuild the kit which also 
worked. To my opinion to optimize your kit yourself pays only 
if you plan to translate frequently for a long period of time.
