Inexpensive? magnetic tumbler


#1

someone recentally (time is relative) posted a source for a
magnetic tubler priced under $900.00. i saved the post but it
seems to have escaped into the ozone with several files and a few
other things my computer ate. i tried to find the post in the
archives with no luck, so if whoever or whomever posted this
source would be so kind to repost, it would be very helpful. i
would be able to get my much needed tool fix. tools a far too
addictive!!!

Thanks Frank.

Frank, I believe the company was Macaw tools and i think they
are out of FL. They have very good prices on all their tools.
They will sometimes have special prices on things at the Tucson
Gem Show.

I saw this a while ago, but keep forgetting to mention it.

I don’t know if it is inexpensive, but Beader’s Digest (formerly
Lapidary Journal) has an ad for a “Magnetic Barrel Finishing
Machine” by a company called Imahashi.

The ad text says:

“Workpieces are tumbled together with the magnetic media through
the rotation of the magnets. Different theory from the
traditional method. Jewelry mountings, precision machine parts
can be easily deburred and polished. An excellent surface
finish is obtained in a short time.”

The ad goes on to promise:

– Simple to operate
– No handwork needed
– Crean, (sic), dust free
– No material removed
– Abrasives seldom used
– Delicate parts uniformly polished

Contact Info:

Imahashi Mfg. Co., Ltd.
533 Hino, Hino-Shi
Tokyo, Japan
Tel: (0425) 82-1508
Fax: (0425) 84-2780

(I hope this isn’t the same one everybody has already been
discussing. If it is, please pardon the waste of space!)

I just had to reorder soap for my magnetic tumbler and was
surprised that it cost $78.00 for FOUR POUNDS. A bit pricey I
thought, does anyone know of its composition? I would appreciate
any help from you out there in cyber-metals- land.
