Ground walnut shell

To UK based Ochidiands. Does anyone know where I can get ground
walnut shell. I would like to try it for polishing work in my
tumbler. I have heard that it produces a very good finish.

use almond shells, they are more readily available in powder form
and is used in paint applications.

You can get plain walnut shell from Balco in Birmingham I can’t
remember the price . One of the lapidary people sells Rouge
impregnated shell,ok for gold you really need the green for silver.
It might have been Evans ? I have the cat on file somewhere , I will
dig it out if you like (if I can find it) tim.

You can buy walnut shell at any gun shop It’s used by reloaders to
clean and polish the empty brass casings prior to reloading I use
about a teaspoon of ground rouge (red) in mine and it’s been
polishing away for about seven years without changing it!!
