FEATURES OF THIS FACETING MACHINE:
The base is constructed from cast aluminium 12" x 18" x 0.5" machined absolutely flat for stability and veneered in oak. The splash bowl is urethane with a padded lap nup to prevent accidental damage of precious stones. Water system delivers water to cool the lap with drainage hole at the bottom of the base.
The Mechanical Digital Protractor provides you with 1/10 of a degree angle settings and allows you to repeat any desired angle quickly and precisely. After you dial in the desired angle on the digital protractor of the Facetron, the dial indicator stop system shows you the exact stopping point. The dial indicator resolution is .0005 of inch increments.
Micro-height Adjustment makes it easy to go back to any facet after the dop has been removed from the dop chuck. The Facetron can roll back to any facet by setting the angle the stone was cut at on the digital protractor and reading the dial indicator.
Mast Head Adjustment Lever makes moving the head height quick and easy. Mast Anchor Lever locks with a feather touch and a hard anodized base permits a smooth movement with minimum wear. Maximum flexibility to work on stones of all sizes and shapes.
Dop Chuck with exclusive Cam Lock System (not a jam-nut-collet or set screw) provides positive lock system on keyed dops that makes it easy to remove & replace your stones in the chuck with perfect orientation.
