Uilleann reed gouger and profiler machines

Found something that I’ve been hoping for, but egads! way too much money:

Looks like they are fixing to develop gougers and profilers for uilleann pipe application, viewing the comments.  Here’s a vid of the profiler:

It would be nice if these guys actually do something for uilleann pipe reeds.  The setup seems to be very compatible to different measurements, just change the head or bed, and you’re ready to roll in seconds!  This would be a major time-saver for the reedmaking process.
