FACETING ACADEMY BASIC TRAINING IN SEPTEMBER

The Faceting Academy BASIC TRAINING event from September 25-30 is filling up. There are ONLY TWO SEATS LEFT.

So, if you are serious about getting a strong start in faceting - or taking your faceting to the next level - go to the (updated) Academy enrollment page NOW to reserve your seat!

In the coming weeks, I'm going to be releasing more new FREE video Q&A - and a detailed introduction / instructional video for one of the most popular faceting machines on the market.

We're also going to be offering some new rough material on the Academy web site.

Watch your e-mail for more details!

I'm looking forward to seeing you here!

PRE-OWNED ULTRA TEC MACHINE AVAILABLE

We're brokering a pre-owned Ultra Tec machine, serial number T185 (matching base and mast/head), built during the 1990's.

The machine is missing the drip tank - which you can build for yourself, or which I will order for you at dealer cost, plus shipping. This is the only thing lacking for a good time cutting on a classic and durable machine in almost-new condition.

Ultra Tec Machine


This machine comes with:

- a small collection of dops

- three brand-new-condition Crystallite Standard cutting laps (260, 600, 1200)

- one plexiglass polishing lap

- a collection of various ultralaps

- a very strong plywood lap storage / shipping box

All the important bearing surfaces, including the deck and mast foot appear in like-new condition (no dents, scrapes, or visible wear).

We've purchased brand new 45 table adapter and alignment bar, replaced another part, and I've checked the alignment and calibration. While I haven't cut a stone on the machine, it appears to me to be in good order and VERY GOOD condition (almost new).

The machine is offered FOB Klamath Falls, Oregon for $2700. If you require shipment to another location, packing, handling, and shipping charges will apply according to the destination.

If you acquire this machine for your attendance at the September Faceting Academy event, I will discount the purchase price by $200.

Any questions, contact me through the web site ASAP, as a deal like this isn't going to sit around for long.
