Brass tumbler question.

Hey all, I am in the market for a new brass tumbler and was hoping to get some opinions on what is good and what is not.

I am not wanting one that is super expensive, somewhere in the $60 range. Any pointers you all have is sure appreciated.

Thanks

The Lyman does what it is supposed to do. It is noisy. Whether it makes more noise than others I do not know. It has a small capacity and large capacity bowl.

I also have the Lyman and like it. I can tell you that it is quieter than a RCBS. I set it on a high density foam pad and it really isn't bad for noise. I recently switched from walnut hulls to corn cob and great prefer the corn cob. Less dust, less media stuck in primer holes, and cleaner brass.

+1 on the Lyman

Mine has served me very well, although I never do use the Autoflo feature. It's quicker, cleaner, and easier to just pick it up and dump it out and sift the media back into the tumbler.

I got the Franklin tumbler and it does what a tumbler should do and it was like 40-50 bucks. Can't complain and when it craps out, I'll just buy another one. Cheap and simple, just how I like it. -Jake-
