      I havent seen anything like that on the aftermarket. Your transfer jig doesn’t
      have that provision?

      The only suggestion I have is to call Zane Hoffman at Polymetric. They have an excellent transfer jig, and Zane is very good at customizing them.

      The other observation, of course, is that you don’t really need to use the alignment slot for a good transfer.

      dont know about you folks out there i teach faceting. i show my students to cut bottom first and dop to expected table with a hobby crazy glue(cyno) and transfer to the green wax dopping. there are a lot of transfer blocks out there, you said for a LEE? i have 4 of there oridgional blocks and if chris of south africa will get in contact with me i may be able to make chris a block. i have made a transfer lock that can handled a faceted egg i did 45mm long X 35mm girth. and also did a 206.95 ct pink yag transferred in it. i sell the block at $35+shipping chris i might be able to make you one for your lee for less let me know the size stones your cutting. gemmakermz@cs.com
