I bought this product about 6 weeks ago now and it is absolutely brilliant. I use it for working with metal clay, sheet sterling silver and wax castings. When you first buy the product you need to allow yourself a couple of weeks to really get used to using it. You will initially be a little heavy handed and may struggle to use it for detailed items. However if you persevere, after a short period of a couple of weeks, you will really see the amazing results which can be achieved. A piece which would usually take me a good couple of hours to take to a high shine polish by hand with sandpaper, can be achieved in about 20 minutes! If you are sanding and polishing tiny pieces you are probably better using the flex shaft attachment as these can be tricky to hold to achieve the desired results.
The JoolTool Master Jeweller's Kit is a perfect kit for all metalwork, glass and more. Take raw castings to a clean, finished piece. Use the included 3M Radial Brushes for a brushed, satin or polished finish on silver, gold, and metal clay. Remove porosity with the Scratch Eraser Wheel. Grind down sprues, get rid of excess solder from ring sizing, and more. Grind and bevel glass all the way to a high polish. Sharpen and hone gravers and chisels.
NEW - Now you can choose between 3" or 4" discs.
The see-thru pads means you have full view of your work and the surface your working on, real-time.
The JOOLTOOL will replace hand filing and polishing work, and make shaping and polishing a breeze.
Whilst we (and you) will probably use this mostly for our jewellery making, you can also use it to take old scratched metal, antiques, and even car parts to a high lustre in minutes! What took hours of work will now take you minutes to complete.
Reshape and polish all fired metal clay, and metals such as: silver, copper, bronze, platinum, gold, brass, aluminium, stainless steel, and more. Using other discs and pads, the JoolTool is also great for enamels, glass, polymer clay, and resin. Use it to reshape and sharpen tools, drill bits, knives, gouges, and chisels.
The JOOLTOOL Machine and all necessary Abrasives and Backpads are included.
The “X” is the newest generation of the trusted JOOLTOOL, a multi-functional sharpener, polisher, grinder and lapidary system. It uses industrial 3M PSA abrasives, mounted on patented slotted discs which become translucent as they spin. This unique design lets you see the surface being ground, polished or sharpened in real-time as you're working on it. This visibility extends all the way to the edge of the abrasive disc, free from restricting rings or appendages. The JOOLTOOL System is available in kits and can be configured for any project with additional accessories such as a Tool Rest or Flex Shaft attachment.
The wide range of abrasives lets you tackle any material and achieve any finish you desire. The JoolTool is infinitely upgradeable so you can add new accessories any time they become available.
