    Anybody know of a parts list or manual for a Vargas Fac-a-Gem? They have been out of business for many, many years, and I am using one now. It would be nice to have one here, going to be replacing the belt soon and the size would be helpful. Also might add a little value to this old machine.

    see if you can get a message through to Justin K. Prim , try Youtube or the faceting subreddit.

    He has a large collection of machines, a faceting museum actually, and might have some original documentation.

    also, I just saw a video on Youtube of Glenn’s son and he has a Fac-a-Gem in front of him.

    search fac-a-gem and Conrad Vargas

    it’s an old video but, maybe someone is monitoring the account?
