Why are dough sheeters so expensive and is there any hope for something affordable?

travelerjjm | Jan 5, 201511:38 AM     2

I want a dough sheeter. Not some fancy electrical job, but just a tabletop unit so I can make croissants and other laminated doughs and other doughs that require lots of rolling. I have a good marble rolling pin, but I have arthritis and that is a lot of work.

I've looked for affordable dough rollers (sheeters) on the web. I found one from Brazil, but the only comments I could find say it's a bit flimsy. I think 10 inches or so would be good enough for me.

The sheeters probably are expensive because the dough is heavy and it takes work to roll it, but is there more?
