I'm repairing this for my daughter, it needs new bearings. Are the wheels supposed to slide off the right side after the nut is removed? They don't! Electrolysis? Can the wheels be removed from the right side? I can't see a way to do that. Looks like there's a steel shaft that goes through all the wheels and is attached to the two on the left. Thanks for the help, John.

Hello Everyone,

I have about twenty pounds of rough turquoise that I wish to either stabalize either myself or have a professional firm stabalize it.

I have been researching different 'at home' ways to stabalize turquoise rough, including soaking in diluted epoxy, opticon, and others, but do not know which is the best. If any of you have any suggestions on which method to pursue, please feel free to respond and provide any details you could on the process.

I also have been trying to locate any firms that could commercially stabalize the turquoise I have. If any of you have a lead on a good firm and have had experience with them, please feel free to pass a contact to me.

Hope you enjoy cutting it as much as I did mine.

Morgan Hill Jasper, the old Badger Den. The shoe box full of slabs came from a cutter active in the 50's & 60's.

I like the yellow background in yours behind some of the red orbs.

John, Looks like this forum is moving. I'm already a member in the other forum same name.
Let's start another topic for our spheres. Ok. I'm just finishing a piece of Redmond onyx I'll post in the cab section...
