Don't laugh! I am amateur (in the original sense of the
word..lover!) sometimes maker of jewelry. I'm thinking about
getting someone a stout but reasonable, small capacity
tumbler for Xmas. Any suggestions and sources will be
welcome. I've read all the catalogues.... what are your
recommendations, if any?
I'm no expert on this, but I have a multi barrel tumbler - it
handles 3 at a time and I bought an extra barrel for a 4th
polish. This way I have no cross contamination between the coarse
grind and the polish. I use it for my cabbing scraps and get some
really nice little stones out of it.
