Hall Mark III Faceting Machine Accessories
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:13:35 PM »
One lapidary club was recently given an old Hall Mark III Facetign machine which hasn't been used in years.  With it was a dop that looks to have been designed to shift the stone off the axis of the dop.  My best guess is that it is a dop for making pear shaped stones.  Does anyone have any ideas on what it is or how it is used?

That's a device made by Laurie Hall to preform oval stones and marquise - it had to be used with a set of tables that were supplied - I think in Laurie's handwriting . One for the museum
