Re: dobing methods?

Hi Mike,

Try putting the dopped cabochon in your freezer when you are ready to part the stone from the dop. The cab should part and drop off the dop in short order. If the stone doesn't drop off on its own you should be able to separate it with a gentle twist once the wax and stone are cold.
