Wanted: second hand working faceting machine
« on: December 08, 2019, 01:29:48 PM »
Chasing a decent second hand faceting machine. The old homemade one I was given a few years ago has got me by but even after several rebuilds and a motor change its still a little rough. I’ve had a look on gumtree without much luck but I’m hoping someone on here might be able to help me. I’ve got laps (6”) and Dops ect so just chasing a machine. I’m located on the Western Downs QLD.
Cheers

Hi Dave, I would be interested in your machine. Would it be possible to see some photos of the machine if it’s not too much trouble? Cheers.
