    I have an old Facette facetting machine and it appears the circuit board needs replacing. Does anybody have any idea how I can fix my machine?
    Thank you in advance.

    If you can send me a picture of the circuit board close up and detailed I can probably rebuild it for you. Its just a speed control and reverse board if I’m not mistaken. I’ll let you know more after looking at the pic. Take it with as much detail as the camera your using allows.
    Thanks Bob Lawrence

    Hello everyone,
    I have an older Facette faceting machine manufactured in Seattle Wash. The sensitivity bar or pressure bar and gauge seem to be messed up. My gauge needle drifts around constantly even when the machine is not being used. I checked the connections to no avail. Anybody have any ideas in what I should do for the next step? Love the machine.
    Thank you to all my fellow faceters for help in advance. See you in Tucson.
