Help! A while back someone refered to havingin their silver
pieces turn black when they were tumble polishing them with steel
shot. I was very smug and said it must be the cleaning compound,
it had never happened to me…well it did, a whole barrel full of
rings I was repolishing to get ready for an upcoming show. Does
this mean I need a new barrel? I have a hard rubber (or something)
black one, a very small rotary tumbler, and usually everything
comes out very bright, shiny and polished.
Well, I’m out to the polish wheel with all those rings, I would
appreciate knowing what I did wrong and once again, what do others
use as a cleaning compound. I have some stuff that looks like
powdered detergent and cornmeal.
