I have never heard of these before, and would surely have bought one during the years I was struggling to learn to make good reeds (failure overall) and still had a good income.
I have a question.....based on what I hear in the community groups I have access to, I can't imagine that someone's use of a euro-scraped reed would have any effect on one's desirability as a player. Just getting someone with decent tone and intonation is a success story, far from having a snit about how the reed is scraped. So if I were to foray back into oboe (not sure that is wise at this point in my life due to the pressure from the air) I would surely dive into one of the machines that easily makes a short scrape reed.
But....how would you choose a template without spending enormous amounts of money trying to find the "right" one?
And, last question, my failure at reed making was in the finishing. I could easily get up to the point where the reed "only needed to be finished" but never could arrive at one that was finished. So if these machines only get one to the point where fine finishing is required, they would be of zero use to me based on my personal lack of ability to do that.
