Needle pullers for microinjection

Hello all,

We're thinking about buying an inexpensive-ish needle puller for
pulling worm microinjection needles.  In the past I've used horizontal
pullers (like the Sutter P-97) but am wondering about people's
experiences with less-expensive vertical pullers -- especially the
Narashige PC-10 and Sutter P-30.  Do these reliably produce good
needles? Are they easy to use and maintain?

Thanks a lot!
