  • Stone tumbling stuff

    Clearing out my mum's house I came across my dad's stone polishing stuff. The tumbling jar and mechanical bit was broken but I have jars of shot, grit and soap. I'm not going to use them. Does anyone on here want them for free (pick them up from Horsham, West Sussex) or the cost of the postage?

      Anything that is going (tumbling wise) 'sold' for postage!

        Hi Guys,
        shall I list what I have?
        burnishing soap A - 2 coffee jarfuls
        burnishing soap B
        abrasive A - 2 jars
        ceramic shapes - a chinese takeaway carton and a bit ful
        steel? shot - balls and bars and nipply looking things - a takeaway carton full
        fine grey sparkly stuff - small potful
        coarse grey sparkly stuff - small potful
        pink polish - tiny pot

        What's the fairest thing to do?
        I could divide it in two?
        Lawrence - are you doing the ILHF in February? I could drop it off then and you could save the postage.

          Annie,

          Thanks for the info but if Metalsmith is still up for it then that's fine by me. I've been looking at this stuff and I reckon I need about 5 kgs of the different types so I'll order from one of the companies.
          Hopefully I'll actually get to the ILHF this year and I'll see you there!

                Lawrence - 5kg sounds big time. What are you planning to do? Anything exciting? Are you branching away from mosaics?

                  No, it's to do with the stone. All the marble pieces I cut end up with a sort of faded look to the colours, this is due to the action of the diamond blade over their surface. The colour comes back up with the stone wax but you can put them in a tumbler with polishing grits and they will come up with their proper colours.
