I would like to buy a motor with a wheel to polish the dings out of the used silver I buy. Can anyone recommend a source.

A lot depends on where you live.

But your idear seems as a good possibility to destroy silver.
Hand polish is the proper way to clean antique silver.

a local "antique shoppe" owner, 85, always has everything scrubbed and grazed and is gone over with a flame thrower and then buffed, after which some of the things appear to be coated with a lacquer. makes my teeth curl.

if you read any of the excellent recommendationas on cleaning silver you will see that it doesn't take much work and the result will be splendid.
