The GBJ Faceting Accessory Dial Gauge breathes new life into old faceting machines and puts the fun back into faceting.  As John’s faceting student commented, "I  don't know how I could have cut my stone without the Gems by John Faceting Accessory Dial Gauge." The GBJ Faceting Accessory Dial Gauge is designed to  enhance Graves Mark IV, Mark I, and Mark 5XL Faceting Machines.

It incorporates an easy to read dial gauge that gives immediate visual feedback when cutting gems. It enables faster cutting by eliminating reliance on "cut by ear" audio feedback and by eliminating the repetitive process of cut-stop-look ~ cut-stop-look ~ cut-stop-look. It enables faceting to be stopped with more precision and with greater repeatability, thereby improving the depth of cut accuracy and finished gemstone symmetry.

The GBJ Faceting Accessory Dial Gauge is available to be installed on your Graves faceting head by the innovator John Wright who will mount and calibrate the dial gauge accessory. It is not available as a do-it-yourself kit. Installation will be performed in John’s shop and returned ready to use.
