THE STANDARD FOR HIGH SPEED SPHERE CUTTING
Introduced in 2011, the Highland Park three head High Speed Sphere Machine is becoming the standard for serious sphere cutting by both collectors and commercial shops. Capable of producing 100-125 finished spheres a week using our specialized diamond tooling with rough grind taking about 6-10 minutes for a 2.5 inch sphere depending upon the material and the quality of the preform. This machine completely changes the game of creating collector quality spheres. Compared to the old grit style machines, this machine is much easier for a beginner to learn as well. A beginner can finish their first sphere in the same day.
A single Highland Park Lapidary High Speed Sphere Machine can out-produce over 30 conventional three head sphere machines.
