Ill use one of the ole ladys stainless bowls from the cabinet.
I use old washing machine motors a lot in wood working to polish small things with . One a those motors would work just fine for this there CHEAP and the right RPM's imo anyway . just take a little bit a work mounting it .

hey that's a pretty good idea split. my dad has a few grinders hes had for years. i'll probably buy a new one for him and take one of his old ones. do you have a setup like that?

did you buy a jig or make one for your press? i'm VERY interested in learning how to drill my own bowling balls.

I bought a press from my dad's friend that owned his own pro shop..It's a JAYHAWK TRI-OVAL JIG SYSTEM..Pretty cool system..I've been drilling my own stuff for years now.Never had my own system until recently..I got tired of paying 35 - 60 for holes..Went to the Jayhawk school to get a little more refined in the new ways and layouts of todays balls...

Back when Jeff Ussery was there? He runs the Ebonite Power House Brand now.

Jayhawk has some nice mills for drilling.

The only thing is that (without a jig) he wouldn't be able to handle oval drills or pitches reliably.
