OK, I found it. It looks like a currently produced machine. Very interesting.

To figure prices just multiply prices by 0.26

Looks like a machine designed by an experienced cutter. Has many useful features.

Agree, it looks like a fantastic production machine. Built in calibration, lots of pre-forming tools, and nice keying system.

$850 with jig, thats certainly a good bargain.
Must be a used one or is it a new machine?

Used for sure. I don't have the guy's information unfortunately, though he is at the show every year with various lapidary equipment, usually not as reasonably priced as this one was.

That preforming arm is awesome. I always wanted something like that.
