Just posting to say yeah it's in and I Love it..easy to set up and easy to change out discs. Just a little playing with old beads right now to get a feel for it. But fun fun fun!

4 of these have been flat ground on two sides..faceting is difficult. More practice needed.

Also..for those who have one of these..I have done 6 of these beads today and 2 hours later my hand is still achey. Maybe its not necessary to put as much pressure on as I am? what is your experience?

Much wiser after having read this tutorial by Kalera..and thought I would put that here for future readers.

Your beads look wonderful..thanks for posting pics!

I'm still in the "figuring it out" phase as far as what I might be able to use on my Diamond Max Deluxe. I've found adapters so the Ameritool discs may work on my machine, we'll see.

I'll post pics if I get going in the near future with this!
