Cool I have noticed these as well but hadn't heard any feedback on them. Good to know. We have very similar heads in Bangkok for just $25. Im almost tempted to start selling them. $50 plus shipping and everyone is getting a good deal! :D :D

$25 plus a couple of dops, and shipping would be a good price just so people can play with them. I am still much better, and faster with my Facetron head. Just a thing to play with at this point. I would not cut anything of value with it at this point.

Thanks! I appreciate the love! Even though we're almost passed the point of dvd culture, I would love accumulate about 25 episodes and release a dvd of them.

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.

I’m very excited to share the new episode of World of Faceting machines. This highlights some of my experiences over the last few months with British jamb peg (or originally gimp peg) cutters and shows off their techniques and technology. Happy Friday!

The latest episode of World of Faceting machines is up. This time we are examining the technique used to dress and prep the cutting and polishing laps on the antique jambpeg machines used by professional gem cutters in England. I think you’ll be surprised to see how they do it!

World of Faceting Machines Ep.13 : British Lap Dressing

The perfect thing for a Sunday is a new episode of World of Faceting machine. Enjoy a journey into the Pakistani technique via this workshop in London.

The latest episode looks at the traditional techniques and machines used to cut and polish a stone in the old days of Sri Lanka. This episode leads into the next episode that will look at the same exact machines in Prague in 1599 and their development until to modern day.
