Response to really strange defence

Vary widely even among tools with essentially the same mechanical designs.

Sure, a finger break is a finger break until you start comparing the durability of one made from machined aluminum and another made from molded plastic. Both tools may work equally well at first, but the plastic tool will certainly not last as long before its working surfaces are worn and "bunged" by the brass PE.

The same might be said for two finger breaks both made from machined aluminum but with different degrees of fit and finish. The tool with more "slop" in its parts fit may be nearly unusable when brand new if thin PE parts cannot be firmly and securely clamped up.

Of the two PE rolling tools shown, the Small Shop tool has features that give it much more utility than the RP tool. The Small Shop tool has a rubber forming platen on its reverse along with the additional forming grooves and channels. The RP tool is not just a "copy" of the Small Shop tool, but it's also likely to be less useful for many tasks that the Small Shop tool can be used for.

And so it goes...

There's more to the comparison of similar tools than just their basic designs.
