Hi All
Just came into this machine and would like to know the brand if possible.
I would like to see if parts are available or at least buy a couple of extra dop sticks.
Also wonder if anybody has successfully added a speed controller to a machine like this. I am told it is not possible with the type of motor.
Thanks

Maybe this will work. I have tried to answer twice now but the posts disappear.

I purchased Gemmasta dops after the original owner thought it was an old Gemmasta. They fit so I suppose it is one.
Couldn't put a speed controller on it. Local electric works said it can't be done. My local electrician tried a ceiling fan speed controller and it worked sort of, but the motor was strained. Suppose I have to learn to work with one speed.

Have cut the pavillion of a stone on it but the girdle ran out. Could be me though. I cheated it and am about to do the prepolish.
