    Today I was starting to pre-polish a stone when I accidentally hit the stone on the spindle and poped the stone off the dop.
    As I grumbled and started to attempt to re-dop the stone I noticed how my Graves transfer fixture doesn’t really have any support for centering the stone while attaching it.

    So, I’ve decided I’m in the market for a new transfer fixture. Anyone have any favorites? Better yet, have any links or suggestions as to who is selling those favorites. 🙂

    I like the Polymetric, but several fixtures are better than the Graves. http://polymetricinc.com/
    It can stand on end, so doesn’t need anything special to hold the stone.

    I have tried the graves, an early ultra tec which was barely adequate, and now use a facetron which works very well. It doesn’t have a provision for centering a stone during initial dopping but I have not needed that capability.
