Has anyone here built their own Hollander Beater?
I love papermaking and using arts therapy in education. Hollander Beaters are huge, efficient pulp-making machines, but their awesomeness is crippled by their price tag. Plus you can't have them in a townhouse or transport them for educational workshops.
I've heard of artists building their own Hollander beaters in miniature, transportable form (ex the Little Critter, Cherub, Oracle) and if they can do it, well, maybe someone on here can do it too!
Does anyone know how to get plans for assembling a DIY Hollander beater, or of anyone who has built one for their own studio, or where I might go to get parts for this project?
Thanks in advance!
