North Puget Sound Faceting Guild
I would imagine that the Alpha Taurus has been sold to someone local but would still like to hear from anybody selling one , complete or just bits of one
Yes it looks like the lady isn't selling it just yet as she has had a berievement in the family, I was truly hoping to buy it from her as I have been searching for this machine for ten years, Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be, but still have my fingers crossed she changes here mind when the time is right, I was also going to offer her a nice Australian sapphire of her choice in appreciation
I would like to be second in line for this machine. I have an interest in faceting and cabbing but haven't started. This sounds like a fair price and a great start to faceting. I am in Oak Harbor, WA.
Very good, I'll let the seller know. Since you are in Oak Harbor, hopefully the guild can meet again in September in Mt. Vernon. If that does happen, we will make it a workshop where members bring in their machines and work on gemstones. It is a great way to see different machines and learn the good and bad of them.
I apparently hit "send" before I had a chance to edit my response. We will hopefully meet again in Mt. Vernon in September, and if we can, then since you are in Oak Harbor it may be convenient for you to join us there. The original sentence implies we can meet again because you live in Oak Harbor, and that bothered me a bit.
LOL, I totally understood what you meant. Thank you for the clarification though. I am very excited about finding this group and can't wait to get started with you all. Thank you ahead of time.
I'm coordinating with the seller - she is in a different town than I am - and I've given her your email address so she can send the pictures directly to you (they didn't load on my computer). Long story short - be a bit patient, I'm hoping to get you two talking so you can make an informed decision.
Thanks Michael, I really appreciate your effort, Hopefully she will contact me and hopefully a deal can be done, If I am able to do a deal with the lady I will owe you
