YAKIMA, WAshington

This is a “dental lathe,” but, for us laymen, it’s a really nice buffer (just remember to start it in slow, then go to high).

If you’ve priced these, you can see this is a killer deal. I sold my base unit, which didn’t have the collection cans, and bought the AirHandler version (cabinet, fans, lights), which go, used, for about fifteen hundred.

Note the quick spin on buff pad holders AND the quick disconnects between them (the shinny part on the arbor, between the buffer holder and the motor).

There was one being sold down here for $50, complete with several collets, a chuck and a few other things I don’t remember at the moment. I was thinking about getting it just to play around with, but I already have four lathes and don’t really need (or have the room for) another one – even if it is an itty-bitty one :)

Sounds like fifty was a killer deal too. When you want one, they aren’t cheap.

I find uses for mine every day or three. One day, it’s polishing brass. The next, plexi. A while back, I even touched up grammy’s teeth.

Why they call them lathes, I don’t know. They’re just VERY handy dedicated buffers.

Have your say...
