Question
I have a crystal glass door knob that has a small chip on its edge.  Is there anyway of using my Dremel to buff, polish or the chip away?

Answer
I think it would take more than a dramel.. What you really need is a Fordham bench grinder. These Need is a Fordem grinder...Theygo up to 20,000 RPM and with the right grinding compounds
you could take the edge off that chip..

I was thinking the thing to do is take that off and go to any jewelry repair person or better yet a person that cuts rocks into gemstones... My guess if the cost is over $20. I would go and get another price. Good luck Rolfe

Experience


I am a small manufacturer of jewelry for semi-precious stones. I have been working in this area for 10 years. Our Major stones are Larimar (from the Caribbean) and Dichroic ( a man made crystal ). The majority of our work is in silver and 14k gold. We do not deal in fine jewelry such as diamonds..
