Re: Thunblers Tumber, Stainless Media and Giraud Annealer

I just bought a SSM tumbler last summer. It's one of the best things I've ever bought! I can't believe how clean it gets my brass. If I don't rinse my brass good enough I get water spots which drives me crazy. All in all, it's a great tumbler. Now I just need an annealer.

Like the earlier posts I tumble with my SS media after decapping.... Very clean primer pockets and for drying I usually lay them out on paper towels..... Brass looks like new!

Re: Thunblers Tumber, Stainless Media and Giraud Annealer


I lived in UT for several years.

The spots are as likely from hard water as they are from contaminants removed from the brass.

Are you using the Lemi Shine?

I do rinse the brass thoroughly after the process.....and if i had hard water (household plumbing wise) I would induce hard water spotting.....

We are very close to this point now.
