Hi,
I am looking for Dops with diameter of 5/16 for an old Alpha Taurus.
Someone gave me the machine but without dops. I would like to be able to use it but this size of dops seem to be difficult to find.

Anyone know where I could buy this kind of dops or if someone can make those or maybe some kind of adapter that could allow me to use normal 1/4 dop size?

Any help appreciated.

Regards

Martin

Those dops could be made from either 8 mm. centerless ground rod or 5/16" centerless ground rod. I don't know of any other faceting machines that use that diameter of dop.
