I think its around 1600 Pete.

I used to have one Jeff Lindsay made but I sold it when I left Santa Fe. Josh Simpson has one that runs the cane in at a 45 degree angle so that gravity feeds the machine. It just has a simple cam that raises and lowers the carbide bit. It does a lot of murrini but I never saw it do 3/4 inch which had better be annealed well and have the expansions on the money or you'll get frit.

It says "patent pending". I suppose anyone can say that. I'd imagine something like that would be hard to patent given all the prior art.

I want to know why it would be pneumatic. The principle is an Archemedian wedge . I can't see why you would want to have to always have a compressor around if you used it. I mean I like compressors but I don't get it.
