Just add about 30 bucks and you can get one form Donkee.com. I bought the 1/3 hp model and it works just great.

I have a Donkee 2 speed spinner and I think it was one of the best investments that I could have made. If I decided to charge my friends for the work that I do for them I could have paid for it already! It is a good investment if you plan to use it.

Hey Group,
When you use them do you also use water at the same time?? what exactly is the correct process for re-surfacing a ball?

Thanks

Well I worked in a Pro Shop for awhile, and the way i was taught to resurface a ball was 1. you do need water so you dont eat away your coverstock. 2. Sand the ball on four sides which would be with the CG up, Then flip it to where the fingers and thunb are down. Then from there flip it on its side. then flip it over again so its on the other side.

General question here.

I had my TS&A resurfaced a week ago. Box specs called for 400 grit finish. The Pro Shop said that with the age and use of the ball, he would take it down to 250.

I now find this ball has renewed hook, but too much.

Can I lessen the friction by going in reverse by resanding back to, say 600?

I wouldn't have dropped it that much. I would've brought it back to 320. 600 will be higher than the box finish, and thus will have more skid than fresh out of the box.

Thanks Brian. Since, my guy does it for free, and lets a counter kid do it, I think the kid was having trouble finding the right grit emory to bring it down. He settled on 250, which is what he could find. I just have to take some off to lessen the friction.

Yeah, just bump it up to 320. You could even hit it with a red Scotch Brite pad dry and it will be around 320.

I also purchased the Donkee. On low rpms it spins smoothly, but on high rpms has a good bit of wobble. Doesn't really bother me as I only use high rpm to polish, but I imagine it might annoy others. As others have said that the Vertex doesn't wobble I kinda wish I got that one. Live and learn.
