    Question Thumler's rotary case tumbler

    Any one have experience with one of these? I used to have a Lyman vibratory tumbler but didn't really have a good place to use it (vibration and noise). Was just contemplating getting one of these.

    Default All I've used since 1974!

    I've had a B Model Thumler's Tumbler since 1974. Quiet, does an excellent job, just don't rush it. Keep the media in good shape, and it'll clean better.
    You CAN also use it to polish rocks, AND with the lid gasket, you can use liquid cleaners in there, too.

    Thumbs up

    Agree Agree and Agree .
    I have two of them and I run Ceramic media in mine and the brass comes out brighter than new store bought inside and out including the primer pocket , well you can not tell the difference between the two anyway .

    Actually one of mine has been sitting for a couple years . Got it used for a back up but never needed it.
    Go for it . It will more than likely be the last one you get .

    Used one for years and let it go to a friend long ago. Still miss it, but he won't part with it. I've got an RCBS vibrating model, and though it works, it's lots noisier. Not any faster, either.
