Can anyone tell me where I can get a good ball washer capable of washing a full set of 16 balls at a time? The only thing I can find is the Ball Star cleaner, but it only does half a set at once...
Thanks,
- Tyler

It's expensive, but Leonard Bludworth makes one.

Hi,

Yes, Leonard; but he is having lots of problems right now and I don't think this is a good time to call.

Actually, Leonard's ball washer is the least expensive product for what you get; a GREAT product. Star makes one that costs about the same but it ONLY holds 8 balls at a time, I don't get it; why did they do that?

Joe Porper makes one also. Here's the link:

Like the Bludworth, it's not cheap. While I know you stipulated the capability of doing a whole rack of balls at once - thought maybe the prices might change your mind. Fred (Agnir) tested and reported favorably on the mini-ball washer, powered by your electric drill. Does 3 or 4 balls at one time and runs around $60 or $70. Always pay attention to what the Head Googan has to say&lt;g&gt;.

Adios,

Your right hand and a bar of soap /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif (j/k)

Seriously, it depends on what you need it for. Commercial use or for your home. For commercial use, I like the one from Bludworth (Rich R's post). It does all 16 and will last awhile. You won't have to buy another one every few months.

But, if the original poster wants to do a full set, I assume he's got more than one set to do. And the Mini-Buffer would be a bear for more than one set, IMO.

<font color="blue"> Pete Calabracy (his daughter, Alexandra shoots very well) wanted something that was pretty inexpensive when he designed it and you are correct, it is not for a pool hall but serves well for a single set of balls. </font color>
