  1. Question Slags and Handmades need a facelift

    These slags and handmades are in rough shape. One handmade is so beat up that I cannot even tell what the center might be. I wonder if it could be blasted with a torch and made so that it would be clear. I realize it might not be round, but it's a shame to just trash it. Some of the handmades would...

  3. German Marbles with film

  7. Question Clearing up the dings, dents, and cracks

    I have several German handmade marbles that have been used for what they were made for, and they have lots of dings, dents, cracks, chips, etc. I would love to be able to see the cores and swirls better. I am not really looking to repair them. I just want to make it easier to see through. Is there...

  9. Question Can this Akro be repaired ?

    If it is possible, does anyone know who & how I might contact them ? If it were in perfect condition what would its value be ? I ask this so I don't spend a 100.00 fixing it only to learn it was only worth 20.00.

  10. Is anyone cooking marbles?

    In the past I'd had a marble cooked by Scott Patrick. To do that, a damaged sulphide is attached to a punty, and "cooked" in the furnace by allowing the surface to remelt (which "restores" damage) while rolling the punty back and forth, so the marble doesn't melt off the punty, then it is broken...
