    You definitely need a gemstone faceting machine. without there is no uniformity between lenses/facets. The customer wont accept lenses done by hand, I'm good, but not that good,
    even after doing this for 55 years!

    Uniformity? I can get pretty dang close. Below, faceted arrowheads in Trivex, with edge tint, all by hand.

    Every customer has always been happy with every facet or shelf cut we have done, all by hand.

    Beautiful! Nice work by a skilled craftsman. Lets see someone duplicate that with a "machine."

    That is in no way as intricate as some of the things we have to do on Cartier rimless!
