So, I finally got my machine up and running. After a few months of trying to figure out how to rig my own stopples and failing, I broke down and purchased a pair of 4" ones from the jar doctor. So far I am happy with the results but I am finding that the bottoms of the bottles are not fully polishing or are remaining a little hazy or lightly scratched. This is pretty much the bottom 3/4" or so on the side that sits in the stopple with the fingers. I am using about 75% cut copper wire and 25% plastic tumbling pellets because I currently don't have quite enough wire to use just that. Maybe it's the mixed media I'm using, but I can't really think why that would affect it. Does anyone have any advice to get the bottles to polish consistently from top to bottom?
