Advice needed on the Hall Xtra faceting machine
« on: April 04, 2019, 09:17:25 PM »
Gidday all
I am thinking of getting this machine from Peter @ Unamit  as my very first faceting machine.
I cannot find any video clips on YouTube so I am going in blind.
I am joining a gem club here in Melbourne in the next few weeks, to understand them a bit better.
Any advise would be very much appreciated.

Cheers guys

Hi Lenkiely56,

I learned on a Hall delux.  The Halls have been a reliable machine over the years.  I enquired about buying 3 Halls for a lapidary club a couple of years ago but at that time the wait was 6 months.

You may wish to ask Peter how long you have to wait for your machine.

Regards
Flash
Yours Sincerely
Flash (Gordon)

Peter's ill health problems may or may-not  be over now.   Check delivery delay as advised.
Our group members at Victor Harbor, including me, have two Hall Extras from Unamit and can highly recommend these machines.
We are both very happy with our machines.   I have had mine for almost 10 years.   The other owner upgraded from an earleir Hall, but had to wait 15 months for delivery.
Regards,   Ghost.

My club has one on order, the wait is in the region of six to 9 months.
