I never realized my transfers were so far out! I have been cutting a rectangular design (Starlight Divide) out of MB's book vol.1 So decided to cut some witness facets, well what a difference that has made cutting the crown, every thing lines up! really good level and parallel girdle, all the other facets just fell into place. So will be cutting a witness mark every time now regardless. Haven't cut the table yet, all other facets went well so can't see a problem.

Cheers

Witness facets make a big difference, but remember when you come to the Table, wind the cheater back to zero or you'll be in a mess of trouble!
