Dear Mark,

I consider profilers extremly useful. Since I have a machine the quality and consistency
of my reeds increased a lot.

However there are typically above 1500 US$.
e.g.
http://www.reedsnstuff.com/en/Oboe/Reedmaking-Machines/Profiling/Profiling-Machine.html
http://www.georgrieger.com/shop/Oboe/Reed-making-machines-Accessories/Profiling-machine/Profiling-machine-for-oboe-standard-model::300.html
http://www.shop.kge-doublereeds.com/Oboe-Reed-Making-Machine_c7.htm

... and others.

I especially would like to draw our attention to the profiler made by Markus Bucher:

http://www.oboenrohr.ch/en-home

this machine is as expensive as a used profesional oboe. However, it machines reeds
for all type of oboe-instruments and offers much more possibilities for reed adjustement.
One will never use a knife again. For me the purchase of such a device (I was happy
to get a used one) was a "life-changer". This is also the ideal tool if you have many
students which all need personally adjusted reeds.

Keep in mind that it is much easier to machine a European-style short scrape reed
than a long scrape US-type. However all vendors of profilers also offer "US-style"
templates.

I would test a machine before purchase. I guess most vendors can point you to someone
in your region owning the machine in question.

Good luck,

Tilman
