4. More is NOT better when using Lemishine, 1/4 teaspoon is plenty. More will cause dulling as brass sits.

This is a great system but takes a little trial and error for perfect results.
I start with water as hot as I can from the tap, as it cools to room temp anyway over time. I do find that I have to rinse the brass quite a bit to avoid dulling or leaving a film, so I'll try using a bit less soap like you mention.

I rinse first several times with hot water, then finish with a couple of cold rinses. Brass is dried right away with compressed air, then sits in front of a fan for several hours. No problems with dulling or discoloration doing it this way.

Where are you guys buying this? I have seen it before in a few catalogs. I think it is $229 in Sinclair's.

Birddog67, fill it close to the top with water, add the mix of dawn and lemishine we discussed earlier and run it for 4 to 5 hours. Then let us know what you think.
