As you can see from my profile I live in Panama City Beach, FL. Was a member of the Faceters Digest and GemKings Forum until they stopped. :( At that time I was living in Meridian MS. My Dad started me faceting with my first stone when I was 16 and I was hooked. The machine used for that first stone was a old MDR (1954). When my dad's eyes got to the point that he could not see well enough to cut he gave me this machine. Used it until this year when I bought a new Graves Mark 5. The head was designed by Joh (Geerloose) which I think is on this Forum. I really like this new machine! Have cut 3 stones on it so far. Work (my real job) takes way to much of my day, not enough time left to facet. I am self taught so this forum is great for me. I am a member of the Panama City Gem and Mineral Society. If there are any faceters near me let me know.
Thanks to all the people here and the help they have provided.
Jim
