Featuring heavy-duty construction for long life usage, the Onyx Mag 4 from Raytech is a magnetic finisher that can accommodate up to 12 rings and 100 grams of stainless steel pins. It uses a direct-drive, fan-cooled motor that provides a variable speed, forward/reverse function to change the direction of media flow, preventing stainless steel pins from clumping in one area of the bowl. Offering an auto-shutoff feature, the unit comes with a 4 inch clear plastic bowl with fill-line indicators for easy loading of pins and compound. Fully programmable, the finisher includes an electronic timer with a digital readout and comes with 250 grams of 0.5 mm stainless steel pins as well as a supply of burnishing compound. Available from Gesswein Co. • gesswein.com.
