I started a youtube show where I showcase different faceting machines from around the world. I just uploaded my first episode about the Bunter machine from Switzerland. I hope you enjoy. I have many more to come.

Great video. Thanks a lot. I live in Switzerland but cut on a Facetron. My friend has one Bunter and he loves it.

Good video, Justin.
You explained the advantages and disadvantages of the Bunter machine very well.
I have no interest in emulating it.

Thanks, Justin - another important contribution!
How's the book progressing? (I know, it's necessarily a long-time effort.)

I’m enjoying your videos and looking forward to more episodes. At one time the Sterling unit was on my radar, so that review was appreciated. I’ve been told that current production of the similar Raytech-Shaw built by Scott Mfg in Colorado is an improvement of the original unit built by Raytech. If possible, please include that one in the future.

Nice to see my Alge handpiece on the big stage :) It's a very cool thing, and hopefully I'll have room to finally get it set up in about a month.
The Sterling machine is a lot more familiar than the Bunter was, but it was still a nice and enjoyable overview. Looking forward to what you do next.

Another nice one Justin. Thanks for posting. I am really looking forward to see one from a currently produced, hi quality jamb peg style machine. I have always wanted one.

Thanks everyone. The book is coming slowly though I am presenting a new talk in Bangkok soon on faceting history. Ill let you know when it's announced. I am planning a trip to Europe in October to find the next puzzle pieces and stories for my book :)

As for the Raytech, I will do that one when I can find a machine but from what I have seen, I'd prefer the Sterling handpiece to the Raytech. I got to see one in person last week and I wasn't that impressed. I haven't actually cut on it though so... we will see someday.


And finally here is episode 3!!
