Janel, thanks for your work.

Here I have some tools and some small ivory pieces good for small carving or for inlay.

The sintered diamond wheel is 3 inches diameter, 1/4 inch thick, the center hole is 2 ¼ inches, one is 80 grid, one is 220, 100 % concentration, industrial grade. They have about 1/4 inch of diamond grid left, it will last for a life time.

And I have two grade of sintered diamond hack saw blade which I chopped to hack saw size from a diamond band saw. They are 1 inch wide, fit to regular hack saw frame.

I also have some 4 inches Spanish hard wool puffing/polishing wheels. 1 inch thick, the wheel is cut out by a whole saw so it does not have a smooth edge.

I wish I could trade for some nephrite jade or box wood or what ever.

I live in Bay area, California, U.S.

Please note that ivory cannot be sent out of the States.

Please feel free to ask any question.

I have a home made machine; the spindle is a #3 Morse taper extent ion.

You can see how I use the diamond wheels.

The white snakeskin agate cat is rough out by that wheel.

Please see pictures for more details.

Any way, I also have some copper wheel that I made for engraving glass, those are not for trade.

Hey Yloh thanks for the reply, I am interested in the machine and the copper wheels , you mentioned that you mad the wheels, anything in the line of hand made over purchased is great news.

I would like to know more about the machine and what the cost would be to set one up, I did see a similar machine in New Zealand and how it was more usable than a conventional grinder for carving hard stone.

I am starting to carve bone and organic materials but also did a tutorial on jade carving at the same time, both in New Zealand, although I need a great deal of practise to call my self a carver.

Please let me know about the machine and thank you for the video, really amazing work!

Cheers.

Tom.
