Hi Rick H.
Can you tell me which Frei & Borel stocks this item? The store
here in L.A. doesn't always have the same items other F & B
branches do. Is it a catalog stock # to your knowledge?
While we're on the subject of making special settings, J. & R.
Mfg. in Salt Lake City used to offer what they called the
"Crowning Glory": a soldering fixture and jig for fabricating 4
and 6-prong heads up to 16 mm. diameter for round, oval and -- I
think -- emerald cut faceted stones from 19-gauge wire. When I
saw the ad I didn't need one; now that I need one I don't see the
ad. Does anyone have a source for something similar? Or a set
of old J & R jigs for sale? Maybe John down in New Zealand can
bang a few out in his shop since he likes to make tools.
Regards and Happy New Year to all,
