SCOTT SUCHER - FAMOUS DIAMOND REPLICAS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
scott sucher "masterpieces in their own right" Those were the words that the New Zealand Jewelry Fair used to characterize their upcoming exhibit of Scott Sucher's collection of diamond replicas.

Scott Sucher, Ultra Tec's Representative in New Mexico will be appearing at the New Zealand Jewelry Fair, in Aukland. The Fair is scheduled for September 26 - 27, 2009 at the ASB Showgrounds.

 


New Zealand Jewellery Fair
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
sucher stones Scott Sucher is well known for his replicas of famous diamond masterpieces -the Hope Diamond, the Koh-I-Noor, and other diamonds of romantic legend. Scott has crafted these replicas as exactly and precisely as possible. The process of duplicating these diamonds starts with an impressive amount of research -- scientific "detective" work - and finally the precise faceting effort itself.

Check out his website, www.museumdiamonds.com, and you will get an idea of the effort, and be caught up in the romance of it.

You faceters who live in New Zealand, this is an opportunity to see the entire collection and to chat with Scott.

GLENN KLEIN VISIT at ULTRA TEC
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
glenn klein We were recently visited by Glenn Klein. Glenn is currently Historian of the US Faceters Guild, and author of the book Faceting History. In the photo, Glenn is receiving a 44 year-old first production run Ultra Tec Mast (shown) from Joe Rubin, for inclusion in the (currently looking-for- a-home) Faceting Museum.

Glenn was very active in the world of amateur faceting competition -winning many major awards. Glenn has been very free in sharing his faceting knowledge, and has written many articles - including an article that appears in the current August issue of Jewelry Artist (Lapidary Journal to you old timers).

Glenn's personal Ultra Tec dates back to 1971 - it has seen many many stones--and is evidence of the sort of working life that can be obtained from an Ultra Tec that has been taken care of-which mostly means, keeping it clean. Glenn provides meticulous care-it looks like it "just came out of the showroom"-and those of you who remember Glenn's competition case, know the meaning of "meticulous".

LH DAD AVAILABLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
left hand DAD We've gotten a number of inquiries on the subject of a LH DAD. Well, here it is. (You left-siders knew we wouldn't leave you abandoned).

The photo shows the Left-side mounting Digital Angle Display (DAD)-mounted and tested. We are running LH parts in Production--and we'll deliver before the end of August. There are many left-sided machines "out there" and we're trying to estimate production quantities-so if you are interested-let us know.

The DAD continues to have only "rave reviews". I did the testing on it, and so I've had a DAD for over a year and a half-and every time I use my machine my appreciation of it grows.

Questions? On our website, there is a section of "FAQ" devoted to it. The list price for the DAD is $780- The LH DAD is item #1314L

● AUGUST-vacation time for many people. To those of you who are taking a Summer vacation-have a good time! The last few weeks have been very hot in Southern California. I'm headed to the beach this weekend.

BEST REGARDS TO ALL OF YOU-FROM ALL OF US AT ULTRA TEC.
