        There are numerous manufacturers out there, I have seen units that
        as little as $400.00 and as much as $10,000.00. You have to decide
        whatyou want. Search the archives. I did a search on the Alta vista
        search engine, and found four rpml articles.
        here is one of them

        Search the machinery distributors in your area. I would look at
        Production Tool in my own area. You may have another tool and
        distributor in your area. I use glass beads in a trinco unit. You
        look at their site here.
