Very shiny frets courtesy of our new industrial do…

Very shiny frets courtesy of our new industrial double ended polisher! This an old double ended polisher gifted to me by Glasgow School of Art. It was a bit battered and chipped when I got it. It was originally a metal polisher so it ran too fast at 1850rpm to polish guitar finishes…it would melt them at that speed! There wasn’t room in the machines housing to changed the v belt pulley size to bring the speed down to the 800rpm or so we needed so I had no option other than to buy a new, slower speed motor. We gave it a lick of paint and added a new control box and it’s as good as new. We use it every day to polish finishes, frets , nuts and saddles to a high sheen! We don’t know how we ever managed without it!
