    I believe Monster went out of business but others can confirm that.

    I decided to go with Simon Hope as well, if I need more space I will get bed extension. Did you find local dealer or did you have him ship it from U.K.? I also plan on getting Trent's cutters.

    Franck Johansen in Sarasota, Fl is a Simon Hope dealer.
    He is a distant neighbor. He was at KC an the Florida Symposium.
    He is likely busy with the Hurricane clean up and highly unlikely he has electricity yet.

    Is that the same as http://www.advantagelumber.com/ website? I'll contact him.

    Hope those in Florida are doing ok. I was talking to Don Geiger on Friday and he said his orders might be disrupted but he should be ok.

    Probably - I don't know the exact relationship Frank has with advantage.
    Frank was in the Advantage booth in KC
    Also Sarasota club has their meetings in the Advantage lumber building. It is by far the the best place meeting place in Florida. Advantage treats the club to food every meeting.

    I'll send you Frank's contact info in a PM aka conversation

    I got mine from Simon in UK before KC. However I did talk to Frank and he said he had a system "in stock". Not sure camera or laser or choice. I got mine from the U.K. In a week.
    Not sure why you want Trent's cutters, as Simons work well. Since I am doing smaller HF right now I mainly using the 5/8 bar and his carbide cutters.

    Thanks William,

    I liked Trent's demo at SWAT and his explanation of the shape of his hollowing tools, not to mention he is US based for replacement tips. Not that I will turn that many hollow forms, but who knows. I emailed Franck, as Al said he is probably busy with the flooding. I will wait on an answer before I buy the system.
