Default Button covering/making machine/press

Hi all anyone know where I can get some prices on the above ? not sure what you would call it - but friend across the road asked me if I knew anyboby wanting to sell one or price up a new one? She normaly pays a trade person to make the buttons but be is on Hols until mid Jan so she is looking to buy one and make her own -give her hubby something to do Names / links recomends for the kit etc,She tells me the press comes with a cutter that cuts cloth to size required for button covering as well as crimping the button blanks so I assume you would buy the lot from one place ie crimper cutter and blank buttons
thanks terry
