Help, we don’t know what size tumbler to get. We’ve decided on a
vibratory tumbler which I believe would be faster than rotary for
polishing, and poss quieter. And we like the ones with a clear lid
and the way you can check the work easier.
However we do have to deal sometimes with quite big stg pieces:
55x30mm leaf shapes (2 1/4"x1 1/4").
Ruth saws the shapes out and files the edges, and the stg shape
backs a titanium/niobium leaf shape which is matt-surfaced, not
What would you say about the SIZE of tumbler needed? Does the size of
workpiece dictate size of machine?
Polish? I suppose there are thoser who would say there are several
degrees of polish. What sort of polish do we mean? Well, at the
moment we use white rouge on a 6" cloth mop on a slow (1400rpm)
motor. It’s not a super-high polish.
As it’s a big investment for us any help would be appreciated.
