    Esterly Speed-Mat

    Any recommendations for or against my very small frame business buying a new Esterly 4060? Is Speed-Mat still in business? Good to do business with? I figure it will pay for itsel in 2 or 3 years. Thanks for any help. I've looked for a used one and they are rare and far distant.
