I have been making a living by building custom machines for several years now.

If you are not interested in spending $500 to $800 in time and money for a simple light weight machine for mirrors up to ten inches then you might be interested in some I will be building for various individuals.

The current interest is for 30" machines for about $3,300 to $3,500 . I have a design for a single motor variable rate stroke and RPM for up to 18" for about $1500.

Otherwise you might try LRE.COM for other commercial machines. They have some used ones half the size and for four times the cost of mine but they won`t do all mine will.

I still maintain that the machine is not the way to go for the novice and that the only reason to use the machine is for quanity or size.
