Agate Master Faceting Machine circa 1980s (or earlier)
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:29:09 PM »
Hi All, Newbie to your forum. Have just started Lapidary/Gem Faceting with our local club in Mackay, NQ. Have just bought an older Agate Master Faceting Machine from an Atherton gent who has moved to a Mackay Retirement village with his wife, & who at 90 feels he can no longer facet. I'm looking for all/any info on the machine, especially manuals, instruction books, parts guides etc. If anyone can advise, please feel free to either email me or reply via the forum. Am happy to pay any postage, copying costs etc. that may be involved, many thanks - Lazza.

Hi Lazza,
I have an agatemaster that I have just spent some time restoring and modifying you will see if you look at this thread:

Good luck with getting written material it seems to be very rare but there are some great resources in ALF that I am sure will help you :)
