    Hi I just got a old (1959) pool table, and have restored it, and new cloth was done today. Now I have the original set of balls, which are very dirty, (yellow/brown in fact). Do you think this would make them shine like new? Or are they hopeless? If I can get them lookking good again I definately would like to try it, but I am not sure if I need something a little harsher on the cleaning side, rather than the Polishing side. Any thoughts or opinions would be helpful. Thanks

    thanks much!!

    great video !

    Put all 16 balls in there at the same time and put a folded towel on top of them to hold them down and polish from both sides. Maybe a little additional weight on top of the towel to speed the process. Use your imagination Forget the vents, mine generates very little heat and you only need a 2-3 inch strip of self adhesive felt above the polisher pad surface. The balls don’t reach the top of the bucket so no need for so much carpet.. Other than that yours looks a lot like mine.

    I built my Polisher this weekend. It actually was as easy as you showed. All 15 balls as well as the cue ball – fits in it at the same time. I believe my total cost was around $35 just like you said. The buffer was $28.00 and I used a $3 orange Home Depot bucket. Some Berber carpet we had laying around…. Cut the holes and assembled and had it up and running in about 15 min. Wow, it works better than I could have imagined…. Thanks so much – and do easy to make.

    Do we want to CLEAN balls before POLISHING?

    Any great advantage in using a machine polisher over just cleaning and polishing the balls myself by hand? Only requires a few minutes every couple of weeks.

    I use ‘Turtle Wax F21 Car Polish’ on the cue ball and ‘Novus Plastic Clean & Shine’ on the object balls. The former provides urethane polymers to fill tiny scuffs & scratches, while the latter is a bit more gentle. A quick wipe with soft cloth between polishes maintains the brilliant shine.

    Thanks for posting! I’m going to make one of these soon.

    after seeing a couple of videos like this one, i built the same thing, it is very easy to do, it takes a maximum of an hour to do. i built a small 8 ball rack for just buffing the balls it works great, oh it gets loud and shaky. great job force follow mine works exactly the same, except I built it.

    I could not find the part list in the website, I think your polisher is really good, but I would like to know what parts you used.
