Robert McFee: I used to tumble with walnut shells and never lubed my pistol cases. I began wet tumbling and found it necessary to lube my cases as they were too clean. Will continue to wet tumble as I love clean shinny brass.
1Grizzman: Nice, I have a rock tumbler that I was going to use for the same purpose. hows this working out so far?
DukeInFlorida: The source for the SS pins is referred to in the description.
Their media is first rate. It's the very expensive tumbler I wanted to avoid. I saved so much on making my own tumbler, that it's like getting the media for free.
BTW, the media is 410 stainless steel. Meaning that it is the magnetic kind. And, any of the tiny loose pins can get picked up easily with a magnet.
AZ Gun Plumber: Looks good. I'm looking for low budget alternate to the high dollar units and it looks like you have solved my problem. Out of curiosity what is your source for the stainless media pins?
