    Sid, the Mark IV has cut many prize-winning stones, but it has its weak points. The main problems can be remedied with Dave Woolley’s modifications to the fine height adjustments, and ease of use is greatly enhanced by installing an inexpensive Beale-Woolley meter. If you find one in good condition, you can certainly cut good stones on it, but I think you’ll be happier with a more modern machine.
