Starter facet machine
« on: April 24, 2017, 11:49:52 PM »
I spotted a basic faceting on Gumtree that might be right for someone wanting to start faceting - $150. Its old but it has a few laps, indexes and from what I can see the motor is included. I can't guarantee it will cut a stone as it stands but most of the bits are there and the price is right. Might also be worth asking if it comes with a bit of rough.

PS I have no vested interest in this sale, nor do I know anything more than what is indicated in the add. Please apply your own judgment and due diligence if your interested in this purchase.

Regards,
GR

Hello.  I am a beginner facettor and am looking to buy a machine.   How can I go about seeing these Victorian Facetors Guild newsletters so that I might buy a machine.
