Torque #2 (BEAD25.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham

Angles for R.I. = 1.54
80 facets
8-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000
H/W = 1.560
Vol./W^3 = 0.552


Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This works well in about any size and material. I usually flatten the points (cut tables) or counter sink a small spacer bead with a ball burr to protect the ends.
