Most of the faceters I know either use faceter's dop wax or thick super glue. They use an alcohol lamp to heat the wax to either transfer or release or set a stone and acetone for the super glue. They sell an activator for super glue which helps to set the glue pretty quickly and it works pretty good. I found some at Woodcraft, I believe. http://www.kingsleynorth.com/skshop/product.php?id=98052&catID=1125

Faceters use the same brass dops as this unit uses. Thank goodness the Graves units don't require a keyed dop, so we can make our own.
