Re: Re: automatic cabbing machines

It has been nearly 30 years since I last used automatic cabbers but the finishing that we did back then was via vibratory tumblers to prepolish and then remount onto dops for final hand polish.

We only utilized the cabbers for the larger stones, 18x25 and up due to time and the fact that the order was for mostly 30x40s.

For agates and jaspers, the auto cabbers might be faster but for softer stones you are unlikely to see much speed gain over hand cabbing.
