A question about Fischer S2 electrolysis machine

Excuse me, I would like to know if there are still supplies, such as needles, available for this machine as I understand it’s kind of old. I humbly hope there is someone in here with experience about it as I’ve been searching and I can’t find much information.

I’ve seen another post in here that read this machine can perform blend with the right settings. Is there a way to know which settings make blend mode? Or is it a trial-and-error way to find out?

Thank you very much in advance. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />


all items for this machine are still readily available. The Fischer company is still making new models, and stand behind this model. In fact, any electrolysis repair person could fix anything on this.

As for Galvanic, Blend, and thermolysis only modes on the machine, if you understand how to work the machine, you know how to do that. This is where all that reading no one wants to do comes in.

Thank you very much for your reply. Could you please point me to that reading nobody wants to do? I would really like to read it.


I am very new to this but want to learn correctly.

Can anyone direct me to good sources to find a relatively inexpensive, used copy of Real World Electrology: The Blend Method by Bono?

Next, if you were to purchase this machine, what other attachments would you need to purchase other than probes? It looks like there maybe a couple of things missing. Any idea of the approx. cost?
I am willing to purchase the book if I can find a machine I can afford.
I have been using the one touch with success,but it no long works.

Any help is appreciated.

The S2 will also do flash thermolysis where the time is set very low and the frequency of thermolysis is set very high. If you read up some you will learn the details.

The machine looks pretty complete. Not missing anything. You will also need some of the basics like something to sterilize the area etc along with the probes. A magnifier or binocular loupes help. Definately get a book! Type electrolysis book in search on ebay and you will see 3 used books available as of today.

Good luck finding Bono’s book. My dear eccentric friend has allowed the book to go out of print, and does not intend on re-releasing it any time soon. If one does come out, he has promised that it will be a severely abbreviated text.

The best book available brand new is now Cosmetic and Medical Electrolysi by G. Elizabeth Meharg and Dr. Richards

I won this machine! yaaaaaaaaay <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
Thank you Hairtell for letting me know of all that Junk in ebay to make an informed decision and thank you James for your kind and professional advice!


Tu mamacita.

You are welcome. Keep us posted on your progress. Remember, we advise that you get a hair removal partner and you both read the books and work on each other. You still need to get at least a magnifying lamp and proper electrolysis forceps, and some ballet gold size 3 probes would be nice. You will want to try out the different forceps/tweezers to see which you are most comfortable with. I like the H style with diamond dust tips myself, but some swear by the OC3 style

I suggest getting those from Texas Electrolysis Supply 1-800 626-6025. For savings, you might want to buy some expired or near expired probes if they still have any left.

Electrolysis probes are sterilized inside the package, or sterilized just prior to being packaged. The expiration date is for the airtight seal of the package. As long as the probes have not been stored in a bathroom or some other place where really bad germs are airbourn, the potential loss of this seal is not the worst thing that could happen. The probe is still untouched. In any case, it is better than using a one touch tip soaked in alcohol overnight.

Hello James.

Thank you for all the information you’ve provided. I would like to let everyone know that I just received this machine today in the mail and I’m confused over a couple of things.

The first one:

At the bottom of this picture:


From left to right, there are three sockets. The first one reads “thermolysis” at the bottom, where the needle holder belongs. I have that needle holder

The second and third one read “electrolysis” bellow. They are color coded, the one on the left is black, the right one red. A grouding device belongs to a black wire connected to the black socket. That device looks like the fourth one on this picture, from the top down:
Note: Copyright RA Fischer Company

The red socket came with a red cable and nothing attached to it.

Could anyone please tell me what goes in that cable?

Also, am I going to be unable to perform electrolysis without that device?

If we need to buy this device where can it be purchased?

I would really appreciate any input and bit of information you experts would provide me. This unit did not come with a manual and I’m unable to even test if this machine works correctly, and clueless as to how to test it.

Everything seems to turn on correctly, but I lack the knowledge to know what to look for to know if it’s working.

Could you please explain to me a good way to test the machine?

Thank you very much in advance!

What goes to that red cord is the inactive pole, or ground. That is the item that you have 3rd from the top in your photo of accessories. This is really just a chunk of stainless steel and it completes the circut on your machine. I am sure you could buy one from Texas Electrolysis Supply 1-800-626-6025 for about $5 or less, before shipping and handling. Now if our consumer reporter Poo can give us an idea where we can get a cheap hunk of metal to put on the end of this cord that can be cleaned with sterilizer processes without rusting, or otherwise being destroyed, we are all ears.

Testing the machine is easy. Turn it on, and put the needle into egg white and fire it off like you are treating hairs. You should see the egg white turn white, and solidify. You can also go to blend/electrolysis mode and touch the needle to the end of the red wire and see that the circut is complete and the machine does an actual treatment burst just with the two ends connected together.

Another way to test is to put the red wire on one contact end, and the probe/needle to the other contact of a small light like a christmas light or small bulb and see how when you hit the treatment energy, you make the light work. If you have an old flashlight bulb, touchine one to the side, and the other to the point of the bottom of the bulb will make the proper connection.

One of those should work for you.


I can’t help with the stainless steel yet.
