Shot tumblers


#1

Hi all, Just a little economy idea for people starting out who want a
shot tumbler for polishing their work. For the last 2 years I have
been using a small stone tumbling polisher I bought from a Hobby
shop.

It runs a rubber and plastic barrel that is 10 inches long with an 8
inch diameter, with a sealing lid obviously -these are designed as
I’m sure you all know for tumble polishing rough stones.

It works very well with cone and ball shot but doesn’t handle pin
shot very well as it tends to score the inside of the barrel very
quickly.

This cost me =A330 (approx $42) and the only expense I have had in the
time I’ve owned it is a new barrel for =A310.

A cheap alternative that has served me well.
