All this talk of tumblers has gotten me thinking of finally getting
one to finish my stuff. I want to use steel shot/pins, but I make
fairly heavy pieces and I want to leave a softer matte finish. I
need one that would work on something as large as a 7" x 1 1/2"
bracelet weighing 4 ounces or more. I also do a lot of stampwork
that is ultimately oxidized. I’m afraid that if I oxidize before
tumbling, the color will be tumbled away. And if I oxidize
afterwards I’ll lose the tumbled finish in buffing away the unwanted
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
