    CD/DVD Refinisher

    Anyone know where i can get hold of a cd/dvd re-finisher?

    I don't need one with a large capacity, one disk at a time will do.

    Please, no "helpful hints" about brasso, toothpaste, wax, vasiline, old kooking oil or dog urine.

    www.esprit.co.za have some, but I would only recommend them for personal use. R 395 including postage.

    I bought verimark's CD Clinic just before i left and what a waste. For polishing it might work, but its totally useless on scratches.

    Maybe i'm using it wrong, who knows.

    I've heard that the Azuradisc machine is quite popular, although its very expensive. R 11 000 - R 14 000.

    Don't know if there is anything cheaper.
    Its either too cheap or way too expensive.

    My brother have one and really likes it, although i doubt it can even remove < 0.1mm of the surface.

    Is there anyone who has an idea where i can get hold of such a machine? Even if its second hand.

    I'm trying to picture the size of cd refinishing operation needed to justify that kind of spend

    You only need to do about 2 000 disks before you start making a profit.
    Shouldn't take too long if you are in a city, but as i'll probably only do 2000 a year it a bit overkill for what i want.

    R 10 per disc.

    Cost per disc = R .50 - R 2.00 (depending on the machine)

    By the way the CD/DVD Re-finisher is R 11 000 - R 14 000 for a second hand one.
    Don't even want to know what the new ones cost.

    That looks like the things the panel beaters use to polish cars with. Stick one on the variable speed electric drill in the bench vice and cover / block the spray off area - now you just need the correct chemicals - brasso or silvero ?
