Re: Startup Equipment

Thank you to all who replied to our post, I'm glad we found this great community! Although we haven't bought anything yet, your collective info has given us plenty to consider.

We'll be sure to post our equipment purchases as we get them to hopefully help others who may find themselves facing similar questions. :)

On a similar note, we have purchased several books that I have found to be a wealth of information, for both equipment and technique, that I'd like to share for thos who may be interested:

Introduction to Lapidary - ISBN: 0-8019-7266-3
Cabochon Cutting - ISBN: 0-935182-27-6
Complete Metalsmith (Student) - ISBN: 1-929565-06-2
Facet Cutters Handbook - ISBN: 0-910652-06-6
How To Tumble & Polish Gemstones - ISBN: 978-0-935182-37-8

Thanks again!
Sean & Mariah
