Thought you might like to see what your arbor looked like when new. Taken from the 1969 Highland Park catalog.

So is there a way to tell whether this uv18 tumbler is the industrial model for rocks, or the brass/metal polishing version that is lighter and not recommended for rocks.  Apparently both came with red bases at one time.  Can anyone point Jason on where to look at spec for this unit (motor plate or ??).

The end discs are easy to find. I see them on ebay all the time. It's the cast aluminum splash hoods & pans that are hard to find.
