Wondering what people use for wet tumbling? I suspect I have outgrown mine, it took me a few hours of doing ‘loads of washing’, around 2k cases and then I just gave up, had a few more to go. Which I would have preferred to do in one go or maybe 2… Anyhow, question:
What do you use for wet tumbling (make, model, link, photo, bucket size, etc.)?
No shit, the only thing Ive ever bothered with is powdered soap. No cream of sumyunguy or anything. It make my brass brilliant and shiny and smooth. Perhaps 98% as good as when I used a sachet of the LemiShine that came with the tumbler.
I use 1 heaped tbs per load in the C.E.D. Brass Tornado
Allegedly does up to 8KG of brass/water. I just fill it until its half full of brass and pins, then add water to the 3/4 mark and let her rip potato chip do it for dale for about 90 minutes. No directional change or anything.
So, after evaluating what I tumble or rather how much… Usually 3 - 4 x 2L ice cream tubs (by volume)… When they get full, I tumble and free up space… After bitching and moaning, with the activity quite literally taking (on/and off) a better part of the day and ridiculously loud, (with wife’s blessing) I’ve recently upgraded my tumbler…
Did some research, actually quite a bit of research and decided to support Australian (https://www.aussiesapphire.com.au), only a little more expensive, but not enough to buy from someone else.
I have considered the DIY option. However, after making list of parts I’d have to buy (i.e. I don’t live on a farm, I don’t have the material needed scattered around, so it would need to be bought), the effort required, etc. it came out only marginally cheaper for the size I wanted.
Looks good I wondered when I saw the outside was round if it would work. Hey presto lift the lid and it has sides. Are they rubber there are some that have a rubber insert to help with noise? How much in the way of pins are you using. Did you increase the amount from the smaller tumbler?
