Does anyone recommend getting my own magliner. Can anyone tell me where I can get one ?. How much can you rent them to a production company for ?.

Filmtools sells 'em. Aside from that, can't help you.

Fill in the "Location" field in your profile and perhaps someone can recommend a local resource.

Checkout the Gear link in the top menu here too:

If you can rent it out and transport it easily, then yes. I have a filmtools senior, it's been great for me. They usually rent for $35/day or thereabouts up here in SF Bay Area, so that's what I rent it for, I include it in my kit rental. On the corporate shoots I mainly work on, it's mostly used as a data cart, for hauling gear, or occasionally as a desk for one of the producers. :rolleyes:

*Everyone seems to think it's a cupholder for their coffee as well, which is a BAD thing (especially when there's a laptop on the top shelf).

Probably one of my biggest pet peeves, random people leaving open beverage containers on carts and camera gear. Ugh!
