Vibrasonic silver polishing from start to finish


#1

I would like to try finishing my silver pieces in a tumbler, but am
not sure about the process. There has been much discussion here, but
none have covered the process from start to finish i.e.

-I have a small vibrasonic, how much stainless shot would I need.

-at what stage, or how much hand finishing do you have to do before
tumbling

-how long do you leave the pieces in the tumbler

-do you need to final polish by hand or do they come out polished?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Gerry,

as i mentioned in earlier post first buy the book by judy hoch Tumble
Finishing… from Rio. then you will have the info needed to
experiment. i have my barrel tumbler humming along right now.so far
so good. there is no one way. be prepared to spend some bucks seems
worth to me for my detail silver cuffs
