A place for English speaking sofrim (scribes), magihim (examiners), rabbis and vendors of Stam (Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls) from around the world to communicate, share ideas, ask questions and offer support and advice.
Shalom R. Shmuel,I was in Israel a bit over a month ago and dropped into their factory to check them out. The atzei chayyim are indeed very nice, yet pricy when compared to Hershkovitz and about 2-3 pounds heavier. Their entry level set begins at around $1400 and goes up from there. The atzei chayyim have planed edges on their circular plates to keep the rollers from moving. They have bearings where the central dowel meets the plates allowing the ba'al koreh to easily from one section to another. Overall a nice and ingenious design for one who wants the novelty and doesn't care about the price.
I've bought several, I brought it to their attention that the paint chips off easily and this has never happened with Hershkowitz, hopefully they have now fixed the problem with their paint
