Picked up from a somewhat well-known online auction service. The seller actually had three of these machines. He got them (free) from a business that made mirrors and inspection glass and was closing its NJ office and headed for Ohio.

Both of the sanders have a fluffy coating of the slurry used to polish the mirror edges-- one is slopped more than the other. A pressure washer took most of it off; electrolysis should be able to do the rest.
