  3. Arrow Polishing motors

    Paul, I would like to know where you got your larger motors for your bottle polisher. I have been searching for some like that to handle the larger marbles for polishing. The smaller motors just don't seem to have enough backbone to suit me. Any help would be appreciated. George R.

  8. Lightbulb Broken marble lampshade

    We purchased decorated marble lamps from India. The shade was broken in several large pieces recently. The marble is about 3/8" thick...and painted/decorated. Is there any hope of repairing this? I'm concerned because of the weight of the marble. Thanks for any assistance!

  11. Cleaning or removing scratches

    Does anyone have any suggestions about how to get the surface shine back on a marble that has light scratches or a dull surface? Is there a way to do this without the use of a polishing machine? Any ideas will be appreciated. Mike
