I'm of the same opinion as Tilman; the Bucher machine is simply amazing. It takes me less than 5 minutes to finish a tied on reed. I then usually do a few minutes of knifework since it's faster to pick up the knife than to put the reed into the machine again.
I have also used Udo Heng's profiler (Reeds n Stuff). It is very well made, but you're not able to adjust it in the same way that you can with the Bucher. (On the Bucher, one click on the thickness knob is exactly 0.01 mm thicker or thinner scrape!) I used it more as a kind of pre-gouger kind of profiler, saving me time when removing the first layers of cane, but I had to do a lot of work with the knife..

With kids and high reed demands everyday at work, a good profiling machine really makes life more fun!
