FANTASY CUTTING.... YES YOU CAN!
ULTRA TEC PRODUCT DEMONSTRATIONS AT TUCSON
MEETING PEOPLE AT TUCSON
FACETING LESSONS IN CONNECTICUT

 
Welcome to the latest edition of The SomeTimes Newsletter!
 

Here it is - March - and, of course, this is our first issue after the Tucson Show. Ultra Tec was again at the TGMS, in the Convention Center.  The show was a little busier than last year - an indication of the gradually, gradually, recovering economy. Enough to keep us very busy at Ultra Tec.

FANTASY CUTTING.... YES YOU CAN!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last year, we were just introducing the Fantasy Machine 

- and this year we were pleased to be showing some

 results. Among the fantasy stones displayed, the "crowd favorite" was this one in the photo, cut by Charles Flynn. 


The Ultra Tec "flyer" about the Fantasy Machine said  "YES YOU CAN !!" - and Charles' stones showed - yes, you can. 

 

ULTRA TEC PRODUCT DEMONSTRATIONS AT TUCSON...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Clint Webb demonstrated the Fantasy Machine and Jack Freeman demonstrated classic faceting.  They were at Elayne Luer's About  Lapidary location, which became a center for equipment demonstrations - as well as for lectures by expert faceters associated with the USFG.

MEETING PEOPLE AT TUCSON...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 

Of course the show is about the gemstones - and equipment - but more than anything, it's about meeting - and re-meeting - people.  The faceting "Stars" were all there, and, yes, it's nice to see them -- but here, I just want say a few special "howdy's - it was nice to have seen you", to these faceting folks...

Do I have 100 pictures?  I'll bet I do, but I can't show them all here - if you are overlooked here - hey! you're in the FACEBOOK Album!

 

Faceting Lessons in Connecticut -- Allen Peterson

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
acp pic

We frequently get questions about faceting lessons - and here's a location that we haven't reported before - in Connecticut, East Granby, to be exact, at the Petersen Farm.  Allen Peterson is a long-time Ultra Tec representative, with 30 years of gem cutting experience.  He offers one-on-one instructions.  Interested? Talk to him about it.

 

What else?  When you go onto his website,  www.acpgems.com you will see that he offers gem rough - it is shipped with a 10-day inspection allowance.  It is listed on his web page.

 

 

What else?  Well, hardly "usual" but in addition to his gems and gem rough and equipment, Allen operates his company, AdEmbroidery - they can design and embroider about anything - but here's something that struck our fancy.  


 
Embroidery
 
Is it the "latest"?  Well, it shows the DAD

 

It's still "new" - We saw just one at Tucson!
