I "put the order in" for my TSC and BHC just over a week ago ... hardly necessary as my dealer responded with "I've already ordered yours"
I agree on the lack of sophistication of the Conturo MFT adaption - I'd like to see something better considering the machine's $5K local price of the base unit and accessories, which I think is about $1K over the reasonable mark. Some of the less sophisticated edge banders on the market actually have quite interesting integrated stations that cost less that an MFT/3 + Conturo extras ($1,215 + $220 + $495 = $1,930).
The Conturo glue pucks are also pricey at $189 a box (about $4 each).
Then there's the MFK / OFK consideration ... and what would it all be without a nice VAC-SYS to top it off!
On the flip side though, I can imagine a complete Conturo setup in the back of a modest van being a snazzy little specialist business
