Does it hum? If so you have 2 choices:

1. rebuild it - replacing all worn components
2. replace it with a modern hum free unit - be sure to get one rated for your needs.

Now - would you like to discuss polishing techniques....

If you polish at night you will need a light bulb,

Of course, if you are having to hold the lightbulb while polishing, you may wish it were a light bulb...

Three to tell a funny story about their show dog and a light bulb.

AND

One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Tom

34 months and some few hours later......
or, to be exact.....
1022 Days, 5 Hours, 32 Minutes later....

The question still remains - how many members DOES it take?

...of course, the now cheaper LED's will complicate things.


On edit - Oh, yeah....let's not forget about the Federal Gummint mandate on requiring ALL of us to only use Mercury laden Made In China (thank you, all you children of Sam Walton) Fluorescents which require TWICE as many lights on at any given time to get enough Lumens through my AARP issue bifocals.

My great-uncle-in-law once hand made a polisher with a lighbulb attached, just for this very reason! He was the first to discover that lightbulbs get heavier at night......let me scan the detailed drawings. I'm sure EVERYONE wants to see them....I'll be right back!

BTW, how's my spelling?

And what if it's 'not the brightest bulb' in the pack? What do you do then? Use it or throw it away?

You forgot a few of us................

Six to ask for pictures of the lightbulbs.

One to tell you that the bulb wouldn't have burned out if the running gear was balanced. ( which might be true )
