I think it will be worthwhile if you see some pictures of a gemmasta preformer :), trust me it will help. I haven't got one but I bet someone on here has. It is basically what you are trying to build. If no one has one i know someone that has but I can't visit due to the virus but might be able to get some pics.CheersMB

Aargh I had pictures of the Gemmasta preformer until a few days ago when I had a computer spring clean. I sold mine with the gemmasta a few months back.

Double aaargh. I got mine spinning just fine. Guess I re-invented the wheel. Once I finish the parts I'll post the finished product. I'm thinking about mounting this on a table with a grinder. I have the arbor and electric motor but will have to buy the grinding wheel. Haven't figured out how to adapt it to Kingsley machine.

So... I had all these parts in the junk pile and decided to build a separate machine for preforming. I'm waiting on the motor belt which is coming tomorrow and the 6" diamond wheels that will be here next week. The water shield for the motor is just 1/4" baltic birch plywood. I will replace it with 1/4" lexan when it wears out. The water shield over the wheel is adjustable. I will eventually drill a hole through it for the water line. Questions? Please ask.

We ask members not to post photos as attachments to messages as there is a size limit on that folder.
Please post them in the Media Gallery instead and then add it to your message using the BBC codes.

More info here.

It really helps us out if you do it this way and is better for those viewing the thread.
ALF is provided as a free service to the lapidary community but it does cost us money for hosting space, etc.  We choose not to offset that by selling advertising because I feel that is annoying to those using the forum but admin-wise, it is a lot easier for us to store photos in the Gallery folders instead of the Attachments folder.


cheers
