The next-generation Genie is here!
The Genie G2 has all the features you love about the original Genie along with a larger ½HP motor and 1" plywood baseboard.
You've seen the cabs at the shows, the windowed rutilated quartzes, the gemstone boxes and figures. You've bought a few pieces of rough that caught your eye, and a cab or two from your region's favorite jeweler you see at all the area shows. You might've checked your local classifieds and seen a couple cabbing machines, a few of them were probably even Genies, still running and ready to go to the next owner.
But this time, let's skip the rust and questionable maintenance.
Made in California by Diamond Pacific, The Genie gives you a full array of 6" diamond wheels to help you take that slab you found in the rough bin at the show last year to its final form. Diamond Pacific's sequence of Galaxy and Nova diamond wheels is the best all-around choice for shaping and polishing stones. Wheels are easy to change if you need to mount specialty tools. The pans have splash guards and are easily removed for cleanup. It accepts accessories mounting with a ¼”-20 thread bolt. Driving the six wheels is a 1/2 HP sealed motor that that never needs oiling.

- a 1/2 HP, 115v/60Hz industrially rated motor on 13½" x 27" laminated baseboard (export model uses similar motor in 230 volt/50Hz.)
