Honestly I'm scared to death of my stick blender. It has such a light trigger. My mom ended up needing stitches after accidentally turning hers on as she tried to unclog the blades. She said I could have it as she's never touching that thing again...

$30? $300? I found a stainless steel one for $89.

I don’t really understand your question marks. Did you click on the links? This isn’t your regular, ordinary beveler. It creates many different edges for your soaps, and yes, $300 bucks. $200 for item…$100 to ship.
The $30 dollar one is more manual, but produces similar results with less edge options.
I believe you are talking about a standard beveler, which many soapers simply use a peeler for.

Among the too many things I don't really need, but would love to have, is a viscosimeter, to measure the fluidity of LS in a quantitative way (to judge how effective different thickening agents work, etc.). Or a thermostat oven to keep something at exactly 62°C for two days. Or a tabletop chilling drum/votator for oil fractionation and margarine microbatches, or or or …

But with some honest perspective, that single one thing that I need most urgently is time. Something that I cannot buy, that nobody can gift to me, that can't be written onto a wishlist.

Have you ever tried a cut glove? These are mandatory for me when using a box grater. Otherwise, I just use the shredding blade on my food processor. But I agree, it would be nice to have a dedicated soap shredder!
I have those exact same gloves to protect my hands while using sharp tools, not purchased until I began making soap.

What I want right now is a very fancy Soap Beveler. It's around $200 plus another $100 for shipping from Taiwan. I had planned on getting it earlier this year, but ended up taking a second vacation instead. I figure I will have Christmas paid off by February and plan to order it in March.
That is one fancy beveling system! Reminds me of some of my sewing machine attachments.
