    I recently purchased 3 latts on ebay, advertised as "white latticinio core swirl; mint. 5/8" white latticinio core swirl; mint. 17/32" yellow latticinio core swirl; mold mark, next to mint." Found this all to be true, except that they have obviously been polished, have lost most of their...

  5. 4 heads - no marble jumping?

    I just had an idea - what about a 4th "head" - it's purpose is not to grind the marble, but merely to help keep it in place! I was thinking *in* the slurry cup. When something does go bad, the marble always wants to go down, so that seems like the most logical place for it. But it would have...

  6. A Strange occurence?

    It happened the other day to me. I was in a conversation with someone and, of course, the subject came up about marbles. I received the customary raised eyebrow, and giggle about a grown man collecting marbles..HeeHee is what I heard. Then the topic of restoration surfaced...Now the guy thinks...

  10. Any Cooks Out There?

    Hi All, I have a 2 & 1/4" + Latticino that I would like to have cooked. It has multiple Surface Bruises, nicks, chips that I'm fairly certain could be repaired by cooking, and could also be polished, but I really don't want to lose a lot of the surface glass, so I'm leaning toward the cooking...

  12. Anyone polishing these days?

    My polishing macine was in starage while I redid my Laundry room, but it's done now! Actually, I don't think my wife wants me and my dirty machine in her new clean laundry room, so we might be kicked out to the garage, but hey, the weather's getting nicer! Looking forward to resuming my...

  14. are these worth having polished

    Hi everyone I am new to collecting and have a bunch of damaged marbles that I dug up as a kid. Would any of these three be worth having polished or are they too far gone or not of any value?

  15. Back in Bizness!

    OK, my marble polishing machine is back up and running!! I was kicked out of the laundry room, and am now relegated to a basement closet. I put a 30" wide cabinet base in there topped with a sheet of melamine-finished plywood. I trimmed out the surface with 1x2's so nothing can roll off. I...
