    Hi, I’ve built a semi-automated gem faceting machine (with Jim Brown). Here is a link to kickstarter when you can learn more, and back the project or pre-order one if you want.

    Not as perfect as a Facetron or Ultratec, but it can make nice stones, and it’s a first step in the direction many of us want to go, fully automated and computer controlled faceting from electronic diagrams.
    Keen to hear the group’s thoughts and suggestions!

    Hi Kristie,
    Glad to hear you like the machine. Please do reach out if you have any questions. The first batch will be delivered by end of December this year. Currently there are 8 early bird rewards not yet spoken for. I expect they will be taken in the next month or so, so please check out the kickstarter page if you want to sign up for one
    .
    The next batch should be delivered by end of March 2021.

    Hi Owen, Great to hear from a fellow aussie. Yes, the power supply unit has a switch that can take either 230 or 110. I can ship to Australia. The shipping is ~$230 USD.
    Currently I’m flat out fulfilling the machines for the Kickstarter. I’ll likely bea able to start the next batch in the new year. I’ll reach out to you then to see if you’re still interested.
    Cheers,
    F
