  2. OK, as long as it is show & tell time

    This my first attempt at fixing a hurt mib. Like Jim, I didn't take any before shots since I didn't know how it would turn out. Has a few little streaks in it but it's a far cry from the piece of junk I first received:D

  8. Question What are my options for badly damaged marbles?

    I have two marbles that are badly damaged. One is a large figural one with a rabbit that is so beat up I can barely see inside and it has a large piece missing ... If ground down and polished it could end up just large enough to encase the rabbit well enough. The other is a very large german marble...

  10. Help with polish pad type to use

    Hi, I am using a powder polish called Gialotex for a marble surface and am having a lot of trouble bringing up a shine. The manufacturer says to use a white pad without much more detail. Would anyone recommend using a white felt pad as I am not getting the finish I need. Thanks for your...

  11. 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...

  13. Why do marbles jump the heads?

    I'm wondering what the major reason for marbles jumping out of the heads are, and what we can do about it! One concern I have is when you run the machine with no marble, sometimes heads spin "true" (do not wobble around the axis of rotation), and other times they do wobble. I have a hunch this...
