    Awesome tumbler at an awesome price. Congrats on making the move to properly clean your cases. Use auto wash & wax instead of dish soap for your final cleaning before loading. The carnuba wax will keep that shine from getting faded

    i was thinking about using the other tumbler for final with corn cob media and a little Flitz brass polish. The first batch I did in the corn cob turned out sparkling new but the primer pockets were still a little dirty.

    Mine was a gun show special and I have had it over 30 years. The rubber grommets were rotting away. I think I got my money's worth out of that one.

    Mix in a teaspoon of Lemishine with that wash and wax and REALLY get that brass clean.

    Get yourself the magnet pickup, it's almost a necessity. I read a few reviews complaint about water leaking in the magnet and starting to rust internally. So when I got my magnet, I silicon sealed the end cap and have never had that problem.

    The other thing to be aware of is if you run mixed cases some sizes will nest like .45 & 9mm or .223 & 9 mm. It's not a show stopper but those nested casings don't get clean.

    For cleaning I use a squirt of dawn and a dash on Lemishine. I decap the casings, then clean, lube, resize, trim and chamfer then clean again. The cases look like new and are ready to load.

    I would recommend this tumbler to anyone, I am 100% satisfied on how this performs.

    Brax

    do you use the steel pins for both cleanings or only the first one?

    thanks, TB

    The way I use it the magnet never touches the water. I use it to pick up the media after I've spread it out and dried it. The magnet isn't designed to be immersed in water. As such, it isn't sealed.
