While Tumble Polishing has been a thread, let me ask what those who
use Carbon Steel Shot, store their shot in to prevent rust.
This is a Jewelry Studio, used by many, some new, and others
veterans. Some mornings, I find the storage solution rusty and oily,
and the shot a mess.
Part of the time, there was not enough fluid to amply cover the
shot, others, who knows? In any event the Concentrate/Rust Preventer
gallon jug was close to empty, and similar was not to be found. What
do others use?
The regimen in Studio, is to Tumble for a maximum of 15 minutes,
rinse and discard the Burnishing solution and replace with Storage
solution. The next person to Tumble polish, then returns the Storage
solution to the jug, and replaces it with Burnishing solution, and
What solutions are others using for Storage, and who is selling
them. Classes restart on the 8th.
