I've seen the woman who either designed it, owns the company, or is just an actor, use it to cut cabs and polish them.  I think its more a finishing tool myself.  I wouldn't mind having one to do finish work, but am not sure how well it would work for heavy duty use in cabbing.

Jool tool may be good for facing Ethiopian opal and some other softer stones, but my understanding is that it is nowhere near as good as a regular lapidary machine for grinding stones. Ebay often has used cabbing machines or flat lapidary machines for cheap. I've seen them as low as $200 or so including wheels with some life left on them. (They are listed under collectibles - rock and mineral - lapidary tools and click "used" and "lowest price" so cheapo items come up first. If you buy the expensive diamond wheels kit for Jool tool, just the wheels cost more than that, I believe.)
