Re: Brass Cleaning Using Stainless Tumbling Media System-Review

Nice brass great caliber, do you notice any dings in your brass from the stainless rods?

Since we are talking brass - Go to the nearest Napa Auto or other auto parts and pickup some Luberplate #3. This stuff works exceptionally well to lube brass when running the brass through your dies. A very little is all that is needed. Apply with your finger tips.

I haven't noticed any dings or nicks, the odd one might get a piece of stainless stuck in the primer pocket. The stainless when in the water is quite soft to the touch, weird I know. I also think the more you use it the better they get at polishing.

It's the best brass cleaning I have seen, no doubt.

You need a tumbler to make this idea work, the vibrator brass cleaners do not work. Check with STM to see if what you have will work. No cold water just a heads up. I had the tumbler so I was good to go.

I use cold water, why don't you use cold water?

Re: Brass Cleaning Using Stainless Tumbling Media System-Review

Pellets Inc., is a source for the media and they are now using .265 SS Media to lessen the sticking pin situation (not that it was a problem).
As far as drying; use a dish towel and make an envelope of it with the brass sliding back and forth, then repeat with fresh dry towel.
After this, I lay the brass out on the broiler pan from my stove-top oven and crank it up to 225 degrees for 10 min., at the highest location in the oven (to keep the heat down) and turn it off leaving the door closed for an hour or so, ='s nice dry brass.
Brass looks better than any other method of cleaning (I've used).
Size first and chamfer after going through the tumbler for smooth necks.
This method is a cleaning delight..
