Thanks for the responses. I don't know that much about pivot polishing tools yet. I used an Elgin sapphire tools last weekend and liked it. I have a friend teaching me a little when each of us has time. gotta earn a living too.
Gary...here are two Elgin pivot polishers won on ebay within the past two years. The red one has caps which will protect the tips. As you can see the aluminum version has a broken tip. One end seems more coarse than the other.
Thanks to everyone that replied to my question. I got an aluminum one from Dash-To. It was broke on one end like Bill is showing, but that is all I have found so far. It may have to do till I find a good one. Again, thanks to everyone.
