GEM-TEMPô TEMPLATES

The Gem-Tempô line consists of six aluminum and three clear plastic templates manufactured by the Graves Company. Use them to scribe outlines of the most popular cabochon sizes and shapes on rock slabs, prior to sawing or grinding. The templates are basic tools of any lapidary workshop.

Aluminum Templates
The colorful anodized aluminum templates offer rigidity and durability. The double sided templates allow placing a slab between the two connecting templates and scribe each side. Using this technique, grinding and sawing the cabochon become faster and more accurate.
