$1,595.00
The Mark 5XL Faceting Machine from Graves featuring a digital angle display meter. This design allows users to truly "cut to the numbers" utilizing a simple digital display that is stable, repeatable, and accurate. Field tested by actual faceters, both amateur and professional. The Mark 5XL faceting head features an electronic angle scale that is repeatable to better than .02 degrees, calibrated 0-90 degrees to 2 arc-minutes (+/-.03 degrees). Precision laboratory grade electronics are used throughout the design. In cutting tests, it has approximately ten times the sensitivity of an LED "Down Light", and allows cutting "To the Numbers". This method of faceting allows you set your angle, index setting and depth, then simply let the easy to read digital display tell you when to stop cutting. A inch case hardened stainless steel mast provides rigidity to avoid over cutting due to mast defection. The coarse height adjustment collar will not drop when loosened and provides a fast setting. The fine height adjustment micrometer head is supplied with .001" increment marking. A 9 volt battery powers the electronics providing up to 250 hours of cutting time.
