Pearl Cutting Jig

Overall, the cutting jig is a good product. I modified mine with a wooden top hood, rectangular opening under the hood, so that a 3" wide vacuum attachment could be mounted under the opening. When I am cutting, I attach the vacuum hose, and all the shell dust is removed. The vacuum is located outside the shop, via a long hose. Works great!

This type of work is new to me. It has taken some practice... I'm getting there. Being leery of the dust from the shell, I've added a small vac to collect the dust with a screen over the end of the hose to prevent my work from following the dust too closely.
