      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 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
