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.
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.
I would love to see the pictures and I am very interested in this unit as I have been trying to get hold of one for many years, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I found this:
THE ALPHA TARUS from Imperial Gem Instruments
Condition: Used, some faceting, mainly for cabbing. Mast was covered all the time. The plastic light head melted and broke.
The machine comes with: 23 dops total, cone, flat and V, in 4, 5, 6, 8, and 11 mm plus more
96 Index, he originally ordered a 64 index but it was back ordered, never received
Please refer to pictures
The Alpha Tarus will have to be sold with shipping paid by buyer. I'd need an address.
Yes I have been looking for one for years as I don’t know of any here in Australia,
Are you still looking for the Imperial Alpha Taurus machine?
