You can get them from ebay, about 80 dollars delivered, from Australian stockist. Came with 2 spare belts, 2 spare O-rings, ball media, a sieve, and polishing powder sample. It does seem alot for the money, I have started on my pennies today.

They came up great mate. Some good looking coins but others as you say are not going to come up no matter what you do. Keep finding them. A lot of pre decimal currency come with errors, these are called Varieties. I have quite a few around 500 possibly even more . One I have the front is at 9 o'clock to 3o'clock while the back is 12 o'clock to six o'clock. It's worth a good amount. Did not find it though I have been a keen coin collector for many years. It came from my fathers collection.

Could keep going, but after 2hrs this is some of the better ones, decided to keep some patina on them. I am going to use them in a project, and they will be clear coated.

I have an antique smoking stand, missing the glass ashray, anyway I use it to rest a drink on. I am going to stick the pennies around the circumference, where the ashtray wouldave sat. I am going to try gravel on modern silvers.

Yes just a drop of dish washing liquid because it foams up a lot. Being spendable coins I run my one on full for a full hour... changing water and adding a drop of detergent at 30 minutes.
As long as most of the dirt is removed you can then drop them straight into White Vinegar and they come up shiny within seconds most of the time but don't leaver them in too long as they will turn pink... lol smile thumbsup

I’m hearing u , I tried electrolysis..... I had two dollars in it , it melted the clamp and turned it a pinky orange colour and it won’t come off . When you add dish detergent do you have water as well ?

What did you use as a power source for the electrolysis, sounds like it was a bit too powerful for the job at hand? In the past I just used any old phone charger or 9v power source lying around, doesn't take much power to get the process happening, and usually only takes a few minutes to loosen up any oxidation. Just use an old bolt or nail for the positive lead and the coin with go onto the negative lead - for the liquid I just use a water and salt mix. Also keep the positive cable and clip out of the solution to prevent copper from being transferred to the coin, also do not use stainless steel due to the dangerous by-products created from the chemical reaction. smile

I also used an old 9v charger not sure what it was off , I had some little plated clips I had but I’m thinking that they were too small because even being just in the water it ate the end off .

I had a gal tek screw on the other side, I’m guessing the clips plated the coin, I attacked it with the steel wool and got it reasonably clean but couldn’t get it all off . Lol
All the sites were conflicting with some saying positive and some saying negative..... so I did both .... well all I can say is I hope the tumblr works better... lol

UPDATE, i bought a KT-6808 and set it up but haven’t tried it yet, in my mad rush waiting for it I was trying all sorts of chemicals to clean my spendables I tried 2/3rds vinegar and 1/3rd Worstichier sauce and it worked , even
On the green ones .... just give them a quick rub with a soap pad and good to go !

I've had one of these for about 6 months and the barrel just shattered. So I've cut a bit of 90mm pipe and replaced the hexagonal perspex. At least I'll get a few more months out of it.
