Hello
since i just registered here's a short introduction.It all started when i was about 10 years old when i was gifted a small boulder opal,immediately the Opalitis Virus caught me and,as you all will know ,there is no Cure.So after living for some years as a mineral-collector i eventually transmuted into a Cutter which,since 30+ years, i still am.On top of cutting i like to build my own machines for Cabbing,facetting and concave cutting.If its warm and sparetime available i'll be outside enjoying Photographie.So all this led me to this fantastic Forum and,after long time reading,hopefully i can add something useful as well.So again hello to everyone and i'm glad to be here.
Gerd

Hallo Gerd,

wir kennen uns bereits - Nik hat mich aufgeklärt.

Schleifen tue ich nicht - nur klugscheissen. Schön, das du hier bist und die brauchbaren Leute nicht nur in dem Goettgenforum ( :smt078 ) aktiv sind.

Bis zur Inhorgenta!
