It looks like it's fresh from the showroom floor...



  This Ultra Tec faceting machine is over 40 years old - and its owner, RJ Welsh of Locust Grove, Virginia, reports that he has "cut 100's of stones" with it.  He says "I have kept it in good condition" (well, that's an understatement - it looks, and still works, great.)


He contacted us because he finally needed new motor brushes (so it's been in use alright).


The moral:  Treat your machine well - mostly, clean it up when it needs it - the reward is long machine life.


The "NYC Makers Show" in New York City, at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)



This current exhibit, in the cultural capital of the World, will run until October 12th.  It contributes towards fulfilling MAD's ongoing commitment to extraordinary craftsmanship across all creative fields in the City.


 The show features the work of a jury-selected 100 "Makers" -  inventive artisans, artists, and designers who create exceptional objects or environments through their exquisite workmanship and skill,. 

Gem artist John Hatleberg represents gemcutters.  



John's replica of the Koh-i-Noor diamond is  exhibited set on John's incredible bejeweled workstation.  That ornate workstation (see the picture), crowded with John's personal collection of gems and stones, provides insight into his practices and his frame of mind as he produces exact replicas of famous diamonds.


John, at the exhibit - his work station behind glass (you can see the Ultra Tec faceting machine peeking through).


The opening drew a large crowd.
