Buying a Polisher


Recommended Posts

Is there anywhere one can buy a marble polisher? I have hundreds of marbles that I would love to polish and everything else I’ve tried has failed miserably. I might as well just spend the money and buy one, if you even can? This would open up loads of marbles that I can’t afford and just buy slightly dinged up ones and polish them a little. Don’t even know if one can buy a polisher or if you have to assemble them yourself and if so, I’d have no idea how to do so.

There is not a commercially made one or anything, the one I got is 15 years old and custom made. The motors on it are ~50 years old lol. I can put wooden dowels on it and some barkeeper's friend in some water and run it for a few minutes and clean that hard to get off dirt spot that's on so many dug Heatons. Saves so much work.

Here is a vid of Mathew polishing some old Germans on his homemade polisher. I'll post this link and his home link which will include his Email as a possible resource in getting what you need.

This one also from Mathew is very informative, though it's not a three head polisher it still gives the general idea behind polishing.
