    Not sure of my definition but I'm sure that would fit it lol. Yeah, most seem to run between $230-250 and for something that just spins your bowling ball that seems a little steep... I'm still gonna get one though lol. I've seen the difference in reaction that freshening up a dainty coverstock does and it makes a world of difference and having a ball spinner means you can keep them in tip top shape year around. So it seems like it would certainly be worth it.

    I canít remember what I paid for my setup. I bought the spinner with a complete kit that had Abralon pads from 180 grit to 4000, plus bottles of cleaner, compound, polish, and polish with a slip agent. Maybe $300, but I️ resurface every ball in the house and it paid for itself in one day.

    I have the Vertex 1/3 hp spinner myself with the flower pot splash guard
    and the guard really does help to cut down on the mess when refinishing
    bowling balls.

    When I bought my set up back in 2014 the splash guard wasn't as high
    priced as it is now I only paid I think it was $49.95 for it but as I said
    it is well worth it as it saves on cleaning the walls and or re painting
    them and keeps from getting your clothing nasty also.

    Here is my setup

    I think I paid $9 for a Rubbermaid storage tub and keep my spinner in that. It fits inside it like a glove and prevents splatter from getting out.

    You have to drill a couple of holes in the base of the spinner and screw in the locking
    mechanism to hold the splash guard in place as it has a couple of flip down type of
    locks on it.

    The splash guard works by catching all of the (for the lack of a better word) spun off
    splash
    as the ball is spinning and the water and junk is spun off of the ball it can get
    quite messy at times if you do a lot of wet surface sanding.

    I didn't think about doing that at the time I ordered my spinner as I ordered it all at the same time
    oh well to late now I guess but that is a great suggestion for anyone wanting to get a spinner as it
    will save them some $$$$$. LOL!!!!

    Thanks, I use a tub too, which keeps most of the splatter from getting all over but is does leave the whole spinner, motor, base, cord etc a mess. If the splash guard works well, I guess it would keep the the rest of the machine clean

    I use a towel stuffed down at the base of the splash guard to keep the
    splash off of the spinner base and it works quite well and the rest of the
    spinner / motor /etc. remains clean I just replace the towel when I go to
    clean the splash guard.
