Re: Brass Cleaning Using Stainless Tumbling Media System-Review

I own both systems but have not used the sonic system. It is not the Hornady system but does the exact same thing. Harbo Freight has a similar system for about half the price. If yur interested, HF has two systems I purchased the larger system but have never used it. In researching I found that some of the cleaning media for the sonic type systems removes some brass. I found a write up at AccurateShooter.com the author had me convinced and I was about to dive in but found the ss pins before I jumped. I like the pins idea better - there is no damage to the brass period. Good luck.

I now own all three systems and by far the best is SS media. Used it in a simple Harbor Freight dual 3lb. Rock polisher, results are amazing. FYI, after cleaning don't leave brass in SS media. I rinsed and drained the brass and media together then got sidetracked on another project 2-3 days later got back and found brass had tarnished Due to galvanic reaction, the tarnish was no big deal just tumble again but there may be a possibility of metal weakening if left too long.(?)

Has anyone tried the pins discussed here and compared them to the stainless steel shot stuff you get at Stainless Steel shot Produced By Cutting Wire - Pellets, LLC? I'm curious which would be a better product.
