When you first see the JoolTool - you can be excused for being a little sceptical. What is this machine going to do for me?
And, in fact, the list of features of "The JoolTool by Anie" reads like a too-good-to-be-true midnight infomercial, but really - it actually does what it says. This is a do-it-all finishing system! Does lapping, polishing, grinding, sharpening, sanding and deburring. In many cases, it actually eliminates the need for conventional bench grinders, belt sanders, sharpeners and the like. The JoolTool does it all! Well - most of it - it's a little tedious for complete shaping of stones like cabochons, but can be used to refinish chipped or scratched ones. Use for final polish for metal clay, finishing and polishing metal, polishing polymer clay, smoothing and polishing stones, and much more.
Check out the video on youtube. Or the one we made - which is only 40 seconds of your time.
Compact vertical design with custom base to tilt towards you. Small footprint. Surprisingly good construction. Completely adequate motor provides high torque at all speed settings. Made in USA. Manufacturers' warranty.
BUT THE BEST PART is it's unique design that allows you to see the surface that you are polishing WHILE YOU ARE POLISHING IT. The fan-blade-shaped disk, as it rotates at speed, disappears from view, and you bring the item to be polished up under the spinning disk, and you shape and polish, with complete view of what you are doing. No stopping every few seconds to check your progress.
The second best part, and maybe these two excellent features belong in the other order, you can argue that if you like, is that it is effortless and fast to change abrasive disks. When you need to switch abrasives, a quarter spin of the disk on the tapered spindle spins it off and you drop on another and spin it into position. Takes seconds and it requires no extra tools and does not bind or jam. Seriously.
Both of these features are best appreciated by those who have used traditional tools. I routinely spend 15 minutes with a crowbar changing the disks on my old polishing machine. The disk that is on it, stays on it now, forever, and I'm using this puppy!
Our lampworking studio and the metal smithing studio are both equipped with these, so if you want to see one in action - arrange to drop by!
Oh, and one more thing. It's SERIOUSLY quiet. Like, have-a-normal-conversation quiet. Like, don't-forget-it's-running quiet. Like, you-can-listen-to-your-tunes-while-you-work quiet. ;-)
