I need some advice on tumblers. I already have a flow-through “Good
Vibes” tumbler that I use with plastic media, and switch to walnut
shell spiked with “meta-gloss” and finally corn cob media. This
system works pretty good on my bronze and sterling castings, but is
unsatisfactory for my fabricated pieces, especially the sterling.
Is there any tumbler on the market that will produce a finish that is
even close to hand polishing? What about steel shot? Is it safe for
fabricated pieces. I have a new line which has small gold shapes
soldered onto a sterling background and I need a better finish ( hand
polishing won’t get into the little crevices.
