    Hello and seasons greetings to everyone. I am looking to buy a polymetric faceting machine but would appreciate any advice on them. I have an old (33year old) gemmasta that has packed it in on me and now i would like to purchase a new machine. Any advice on the performance,ease of getting parts. Thank you.

    They are a good machine but, buy the time you get it into australia including customers Tax  very expensive

    why not have a look at the VJ is an execellent Aussie Faceting machine and I think the ConCave attachement is still avabile if you wish to go down that parth . it would be a lot cheaper and parts are available
