I see one Heaton corkscrew-red and white--cool beans.

What do you call the stuff that they are bedded in--also very cool. Marble foam, I like it.

Marble--On!!

It's a ying - yang pattern, there were loads of them in the mix, I kept the best ones and cleaned em up. Hang on a sec, I'll get the foam link to Amazon. This is the link to the  seating pads, there are two sizes, the better deal is the bed sized one. A little research will turn up just what you want. I ordered both and glad I did because of the differing sizes in the holes, one fits up to 11/16ths comfortably and the smaller pad like this one, has bigger divots & will hold 3/4" and a bit bigger very comfortably. Waterproof and easy cut to fit whatever your dimensions have.

Here's a pic of one of the Heaton  "corkscrew" lookalikes

Thanks for the link, my order is in🤩

several companies make exactly the same thing, called "Eva Foam" I think. I like the the two colored type as you ordered, you'll find the full bed size also, I've used I don't know how many to make my own boxes and displays Chuck (cheese) is the one that gave me the link in the first place.  Aha !! found the full size that cheese gave me the link to in the first place, this one comes with a vid for ya to watch.

Two Vacor Michelangelo mibs, the small one is first run and the big one is a much newer run,  both are Michelangelo's. The small one I've had for years and the larger one I just recently got from a Marble Brother overseas.

I've missed this place, and many of the people in it! But I've been preoccupied with a family medical situation for the past few months (my soon to be 94 year-old Mother). Things are a bit calmer at the moment but you probably won't see me around much for a while longer. In the meantime, I hope you all have great holidays!

There is nothing but support from me Ric. My mother passed at 90 earlier this year. I was lucky in the sense that all of my siblings were on the same page. Keep on keepin on! This too shall pass!

Great marble by the way--I love these crystal clear based white slags.

Marble--On!!

Any information on this slag/swirl will be greatly appreciated! size 1 inch

At 1 inch I would agree that it is an Akro---Top Notch for sure. One of the very best big slags that I have seen--ever. It does appear to be a machine made marble and Akro made more of these that any other.

Marble--On!!

“Jabo Contract Marbles” are all over the place on e-bay, all glitter and sparkle but this one caught my eye. Round and mint at ¾”. I cannot remember the run—I just get them because I like them.
I asked myself “How many Oxblood, transparent based swirls do you have”. Some of these are worth shelling out for imho. I do not need hundreds of them, one or two will do.
Marble—On!!
