Debbie,
Not sure what part of the country you are in BUT, you can be pretty sure that faceting help is not too far.   Graves are pretty basic machines and someone with a little experience can get you back in alignment.   As far as neck pain, getting lighting in right place helps but, you "should not" have to be constantly looking.  Get you stop set right and then you only need to look when getting close.  There is even a very easy way to connect an inexpensive meter on an older Graves so you will not have to look until you are very close.  I think it is over on the USFG site.  When I had my Graves mark IV, I always had one of those led lights beside me to shine straight at the stone when you lifted it and pointed toward you.
At least you didn't pop the dop when you were near finished[lol].  Because you spin faceting wheel slower than cabbing, that does not happen as often.

Good luck,
Regis
