Re: Flat Lap vs. Wheel Style Lapidary Machines?
When I was getting started I was not prepared to spend the money on an expensive machine, like you. I started looking everyday at what was available on eBay. I finally bought a very old, and heavy, machine with 5 wheels for about $400. I used it until I could afford a genie, and then sold it on eBay for close to what I paid for it. My trim saw I bought new, but I have seen them on eBay too.
On eBay, look at Lapidary Materials, Tools & Supplies.
