DID YOU KNOW? After learning the mechanics of tumbling, hobbyists usually have more time than the pros to spend on decisions that make the difference between an average and superior result. If you don't make your living with a rock tumbler where time is of the essence, you can slow down and consider the selection and grading of tumbling rough, as well as what grits and final polish you want. Professional lapidaries who are under deadlines must compromise. They must produce something to sell quickly, whereas your interest is in producing a thing of beauty! Impatience is responsible for most bad work, but not when you take your time and practice and experiment. And because of Lortone's long history of producing high value, economical lapidary and jewelry equipment, your "practice makes perfect" well take you well into the future! Whether you're active in cutting slabs or bookends, polishing cabs, deburring metals, tumbling jewelry or beach agate, feel confident adding a Lortone rock polisher to your rock hound tool arsenal.
