**UPDATE: Saturday 9/21/2019 - This item is now sold.
I have a used mid-1990s model Ultra Tec V2 faceting machine for sale which I recently purchased out of an estate for the purpose of resale. I have installed a brand new UT rubber drive cone and splash pan on this machine and have cut a test stone on it. I found the accuracy to be good and I was able to cut a commercial grade (or better) barion square design test stone with it (see the last two photos in the photo flickr gallery linked above).
This machine is very clean, tight and in good condition. And it comes with a 96 Index Gear and the following original accessories: flexible Moffat Light, UT drip pot, UT Alignment Bar, UT Dop Transfer Fixture and four Allen Wrenches. (A copy of the owners manual for a newer, but very similar model of the Ultra Tec V2 analog faceting machine can be downloaded from Ultra Tec's web site.)
We could not find the original UT dops or UT table adapter. The sister of the original owner said that there used to be a cabinet there that her sister kept some of her stone cutting items in but that the cabinet had already been taken away and she didn't know what had happened to the contents. So I am adding a new factory sealed set of 14 un-keyed Graves brand dops and table adapter to the sale of this outfit since the use of keyed dops is not necessary. The Graves brand dops fit and work fine as will any standard 1/4" diameter shaft faceting dops. And many cutters, including myself, often prefer not to use keyed dops (when cutting the test stone with this machine I used standard non-keyed Graves brand dops and a Graves brand table adapter all with no issues). But if you decide you would rather use keyed dops you can always order a set of UT dops and a UT table dop from Ultra Tec.
Thank you for looking!
