all good great service exactly what I ordered

Just what I wanted. Neat design.

11 Mar 2016 - by Emma


Unfortunately I bought this item after I left University and have only now started using it. I have found it incredibly frustrating. To start, the lid is very hard to get on and off, although I have filled it with hot water first to soften it, I have still pinched my finger a couple of times. Then the barrel leaks water so you end up with a small pool of water under the machine. And lastly, the main problem I’m having it to actually get the barrel to spin around! I find myself standing there trying to get it to catch onto the rubber wheels to then start spinning. I have tried moreless water and shot but still no luck. All in all I’m really dissapointed with it, especially for the money. It’s simply a basic motor with a bit of plastic tube, reading the other reviews I seem to be outnumbered so if anyone has any advice I would be very great ful, thanks.

Cooksongold replies: Dear Miss Gentry, Thank you for your review, your feedback is really important to us. I am sorry to hear of the experience you have had with the Barrelling Machine. I will pass your comments on to our Supplier. Kind Regards, Emma

Roll On Barrelling Machine!

I started renting a small stall to start my small jewellery business, I made my silver at home and needed to clean and polish my work for to sell at the stall. I attend a weekly jewellery class at a local college but it was not convenient to do my own work there. I was wondering if I should buy a Barrelling machine from Cooksongold, I didn't know if I should spend the money on this machine or spend the money on some other tools, after thinking long and hard I decided to purchase it, up to now I have no regrets - I use it to polish all my work. The results is great, the silver is shine and clean. IT IS ONE OF THE BEST INVESTMENTS I HAVE EVER BOUGHT!!One advice is the lids it is very hard to put on, so best to fill the lid with hot water for a minute so that the lids are not so hard. Apart from that I am really happy with it and the funnies thing is, I don't mind the sound the barreling machine makes, in fact I find it very Soothing hearing it!

Love this machine, has saved me so much time and polishes all the hard to reach areas. You do need to make sure that when you are closing the lid that you let all the air out because if you don't I have found that it does not turn on the rollers. Once you get the hang of this it is a fantastic wee machine.

I bought this small barrel in Cooksons sale I have used larger barrels at work I needed the convenience of a barrel at home, they are a must have tool and they save hours of work,two points about this model, keep the load small,make sure,when starting it, the outside of the barrel,and the drive rollers are dry, otherwise it will slip, not rotate, also place the lid in hand warm water,much easier to get on,

Gives finishing the WOW factor

Saved the best-for-last when fitting out my workshop. I had to wait for a Sale price so I could spend the money I saved on 1kg of stainless steel shot. It's not big and it is a bit noisy, but I can't make myself care about that. Like a child opening a Christmas stocking, I get all excited everytime I remove the lid. It's like a magical Lucky Dip that turns yesterday's work into today's pride and joy. My sink is by a sunny window, so I spend a little too long admiring my lovey shining pieces. It renews my thrill in silverwork and inspires me anew each morning.
