Add your choice of 2 single cabochon templates to your cart with this machine to apply the discount.
*US addresses only, the cost of starter pack items will be deducted from refunds if an open machine order is requested to be canceled prior to shipping.
Availability update May 2022: Pixies are currently back ordered until Diamond Pacific is able to source new hoods, potentially available again in August 2022. Please use the notify-me form to request an update when machines are available again.
You have a cabbing arbor in your garage, maybe it's even a Titan. You've cut a lot of cabs and get the dome and high-gloss finish just right. All the vendors at the regional shows know you and your motor home has seen a lot of interstate between home and a show or two... maybe it even has red Tucson dust in the brakes. You might be wondering how in the world to set up your Genie on that folding table during vacation.
But let's be real, that RV is marketed for relaxing...
Built in sunny California by Diamond Pacific, The Pixie gives you the full array of 4 inch diamond wheels, weighs less than 30 lbs including the lamp, and needs no special hookups or plumbing. It has everything you need to finish that nagging stack of preforms on vacation or on the road at shows in your RV or hotel. The smaller sized wheels are also popular with opal cutters. Diamond Pacific's sequence of Galaxy and Nova diamond wheels is the best all-around choice for shaping and polishing lapidary stones. The Pixie's Galaxy and Nova wheels are easy to change if you need to mount specialty tools and a special spare wheel adaptor is available to get it done in seconds. The large molded pan has splash guards and is easily removed for cleanup. It accepts accessories mounting with a 1/4"-20 thread bolt.
