| > Susan,
|
| After searching for used beaters for about two years,  finally building
one
| that does work I finally bought a David Riena beater from Carriage House.
| As I write it is beating away.  The only two places that make
commercially,
| well,  three places that make beaters are David Reina Designs, Lee Scott
| McDonald and Valley Beaters.  They are all fairly expensive or at least to
a
| retired teacher they are expensive.  The one I have cost $7000.00 for the
| beater, some extras and shipping to Idaho from New York.  I have seen the
| Lee Scott Beaters and the Valley beaters and find the David Reina to be
much
| better in several ways.   The Reina beater is very portable. I can  load
it
| on a trailer and take it with me to classes I give on  papermaking.  It is
| also very well made.  All stainless steel and  brass.   It does a
beautiful
| job of beating.   I made paper for about 10 years or thought I was making
| paper until I got the David Reina beater.
|
| You might be able  to locate a used beater from  a paper mill.  I  tried
| that and for two years got no  response from  any paper mill in the
| northwest.  I do have a friend that works at a  paper  mill in Canada who
| salvages beaters from the mill he works at. They are Valley Beaters.   The
| Valley beater is very heavy and not very portable.   They also have a
| movable bed plate which seems  to be  kind  of awkward but evidently they
| work.   You might contact Greg at gasabo@telus.net.  Tell  him Tom  from
| Idaho sent you. Most generally the beaters he  has run in the neighborhood
| of about $3000.00  pluse shipping and duty fees but that is Canadian
money
| which is about half of the  US. dollar, I think or maybe  it is the other
| way around.
|
| After many months of searching for a beater someone  on the internet said
"
| everyone is  looking for a beater."   The best but most  expensive is the
| commerically made beater from either David Riena or Lee Scott McDonald.
|
| Addresses for the the David and  Lee beaters are:
|
| David Reina, 79 Guernsey St, Brooklyn NY  11222  Phone  718  599-1237
|
| Lee S. Mc Donald, Box 264, Charlestown, MA  02129  1  888-627-2737
|
| Hope this has been some help.  If you have any questions please feel free
to
| email
|
| Tom
