I know we’ve rehashed the issue of tumblers many times, but I’m
finally at the stage where I want to buy one (this week) and am
having a hard time deciding which to get.
I do very small scale jewelry – earrings, rings, pins, chains,
– would only tumble 1 or 2 items at a time. The purpose of the
tumbler is to take off the film left by casting, and polish up
chains, etc. Jewelry is purely a hobby for me. I don’t want to
spend much money on the tumbler. I’m trying to decide between
- mini rotary tumbler, 1 qt, about $70 (US)
- Vigor vibratory tumbler, TM 103, bowl is 10" diameter, 4"
high, about $150
- Tumble Vibe economy tumbler, bowl is 8" diameter, about $100
Please HELP me decide. I really would prefer to go with (1)
because of price, unless you all advise against it. Also, the
media I am planning to buy is stainless mixed shot with just
water and a chunk of soap (per Orchid recommendations).
A very BIG thanks in advance,
