If you belong to Northcoast Faceting or USFG lists on Yahoo, this is just the same thing...

As a firm believer in copy/paste... (USFGlist/NCF members will see)

I got the first video up on Youtube. You can find it by searching for "FFF2 Dopping" or follow the link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PToGQ0KK6s

Hot Wax Dopping is covered mostly. And Will Smith shows an alternate use for CA (I cut out the part showing why he needed it).

The end piece on Epoxy was just my note to answer the question. I was using a wireless mic and could not get the room discussion.

Hey gsellis,
How long does it go for?
Hubby has it set up to cut out after 5 mins, his kid controller.

As I get time... cuts into my cutting time ;) I have Johnny Tews talking about speed cutting with an over-the-shoulder view of a GemMaster in action. I found it interesting. Dan Lynch did a mining speech for out west (US) and has provided the slides. That one will take a little longer as there is some editing and color correction to do. I have a crown/pavillion optimization one to edit too. That requires the stills I took and have not uploaded to my PC yet.

I did try Roy's technique when I got home and found that with irregular rough, it is hard to do that initial mount against another dop. I think if I use my gray soft eraser on the dop (pliable like Silly Putty), I may get it to work.

I got a serious "Awwww" moment in my Dopping video comments on Youtube. Will Smith's granddaughter (based on username) posted this note. Best comment I have ever seen in Youtube.

Quote:
Hi Granddaddy! I liked seeing you in this video. I'm happy that I got to see your face on video. I never got to see you in a video before.
Love you, Alison
