Hopefully this is allowed. Thanks!

Hi Kylie, there are several lapidary clubs in Brisbane, all have faceting nachines. 

Some have waiting lists, but depending on his level of experience he may be able to find a club with a machine he can use at the club while waiting for a machine to buy.

Let me know your grandfather's location and I'll give you a list of local clubs.

Also, try contacting Gemcuts in Balina.  Brian boughtvthe Gemmaster business lastcyear and has been fitting dc motors to older motors.  I understand he is gearing up to make new Gemmasters, but maay have heard of 2nd hand machines for sale.

Also try Brett at Gemhunters Haven - he sometimes finds second hand faceting machines and sells them on.  Just google them for phone number.
