    Perhaps a list of dividing engins would be shorter
    (and more interesting) than a list of "makers":-)
    But harder to make.
    
    Almost equally hard will be to make a list
    of TESTING machines which are used to produce
    a certificate. I wonder whether Cassens-Plath has one:-)
    They refused to show me anything in their factory
    except ready items for sale. And the certificates
    they issue do not contain real numbers:-)
    
    But I've seen this machine at Freiberger, and I know
    that the Russians have two similar ones:-)
