Roc Auto cabochon grinding forming machine was the first generation of this machine design. Roc built just a few of these machines and went out of business and the tooling for this machine went to another manufacturer..This time several more features were added to the automatic side of the machine. I feel this is the best auto cab cutting machine ever designed and built in the USA and probably the best built machine in the world for the money.

This machine finally ended up at Con-tempo Lapidary and they acquired several still new in the crate machines. Con-tempo never did manufacture any of these machines. I acquired the machines they had and used this machine to produce one of the largest cabochon cutting operations in the USA. Our shops production was several thousand cabs a day.

Here is a rare hard to find machine. This machine has had very little use and is virtually almost new, except for sitting in my shop for many years. I have all the makes and models of all the auto cabbing machines made in America as well as when the different machines sold to new manufacturers and then changed the designs slightly. I have used this model machine in my shop for twenty five years. This design came as a single head as well as a double head configuration.

This machine is a double head machine. I tried to take pictures of the stone holding mandrel as well as the forming mandrel holder. The machine traces off of a mandrel that is the size and configuration that you need. But then you can adjust the settings and increase the size as well as decrease the size of the finished stone. If you look at my pictures you will see that these forming mandrels can be removed and set with another size mandrel as well if you look you can see where the stone doped onto a metal dop will I insert into the stone side of the machine. The edge of the stone is ground first then the machine rotates the stone across the face of the wheel and then forms the domed top of the stone.

This machine is an eight inch machine and uses two eight inch diamond wheels which is included. This is a very large and very heavy machine. It probably weighs more than 100 pounds. I had one of the largest stone cutting volume shops in America and in my height of volume I could cut thousands of cabs a day. I have cut several million cabs with these machines.

So you are buying a machine from someone that has used this machine and can help you with all the problems and questions that you will have and need. Even the manufactures of these different machines could not help you with the answers that I can provide for you. They ONLY manufactured the machines and had no idea how to use them or the different problems that come up with volume. I have spent a lot of money on research and with machine shops until I bought my own machine shop and did the work myself. So yes I will help you with setting this machine up and helping you in the future with any questions that you might have in the future. I am not going anywhere and have been here on eBay for over 12 years now.


I am moving my home right now and I am shrinking my shop. But please understand I am not selling out or getting out of the stone and Turquoise business. I just had a huge shop and all this equipment is too much for my future needs. I am still keeping several of these for myself. I just do not think I need a dozen of these anymore.

This machine if manufactured to day would cost well over $20,000 dollars and that would be without tooling. So what I am asking is very minimal to its true value. Just compare this to a Titan and try to see what just the bare motor and arbor and diamond wheels would cost. I am only asking a little more than a Titan price. Get it before someone else does .

Also I have built my own custom designs of dies that are for the custom shapes. So do not think this machine will only cut the standard ovals that the industry needs. You can even cut left and right designs with your own custom tooling. You can cut stone that fit into your own custom designs from your castings or whatever yo mighty come up with.

 The machine will cut a stone in about two minutes from agate or other hard stone. Much faster on softer stone. Set up correctly you could cut at least 500 - 1000 stones a day with this machine. I have done this.!!! I have actually cut over 1500 cabs a day with this machine using just one machine.

 I am selling this machine and the tooling and dies and dops and jigs and set ups to run this machine...You are getting the complete deal. I will not show the pictures of the tooling and jigs as they are my unique designs for production..But I will include them with the machine...I spent over $5000.00 just on the custom very precise dops and that was 20 years ago....the other tooling was more. Each die will cost several hundred to make and you will get many with this deal....Part trade or all trade deals considered..considered....Harley..boat..car..Backhoe, small dozer....???

BTW the diamond wheels on the machine are not the cheap import ones..they are the very high end turbo wheels...They did not chip as much as other wheels..I have done the research.....You have access to that with this machine...

not sure the exact cost to ship we can decide this together...but we can figure how you want shipped...I will only charge the exact shipping charge and will not charge you to crate the machine...I crate and pack very well..the crate will be a mix of wood .thin plywood and wood crating and cardboard...a very secure crate..

Just email me and we can figure the freight options..ebay is to confusing on how to set that up in the listing.. I set this at 150 pounds just to satisfy ebay requirements but at all not acurate..I will only charge the exact shipping cost and will not charge to pack and crate...!!!
