Curb Chain: Diamond Cut (Unfinished)

This chain is awaiting polishing / finishing after the diamond cutting stage.

Update: Luckily I have the guru AKA Murray available to help me find a solution. We spent the morning problem solving and now things are running much more smoothly (to the delight of Buddy who was re-spooling all the rejects!)
