I have been cutting Oregon opal in the SBR design on my Facetron.

I cut the pav abd everything cut fine. I reverse the stone to cut the
crown and something goes wrong. As I go around with the 600 lap the
edges of the girdle facets start to look like saw teeth. High on one
side. I do not see this on the pav. Any idea where I should look to
correct this?

TODAY'S FUNNY:

Norman and his wife live in Minneapolis. One winter
morning while listening to the radio (WCCO, no doubt),
they hear the announcer say,

"We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today.
You must park your car on even numbered side of the
street, so the snowplow can get through."

Norman's wife goes out and moves her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast, the radio
announcer says,

"We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today.
You must park your car on the odd numbered side of
the street, so the snowplow can get through."

Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again.

The next week they are having breakfast again, when
the radio announcer says,

"We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. 
You must park....."

then the electric power goes out.

Norman's wife is very upset, and with a worried look on
her face she says,

"Honey, I don't know what to do." Which side of the
street do I need to park on so the plow can get through?

With the love and understanding in his voice like all of us
men who are married to Blondes exhibit, Norman says,
"Honey, why don't you just leave it in the garage this time?"
