The Mandala Rose Engine is a great way to get started without having to build your own machine. I've spoken to a number of people who own them, and they really like the machine.

It has a few really great features:

  • It can hold many rosettes at one time
  • It can move in both directions: both rocking and pumping.
  • It has a low cost.

Wade Wendorf is the owner of the company, and he is a great guy to talk to. He can help you ensure you get started well. When I was building my first one, Wade worked with me to get customized rosettes for what I wanted to do.
