    Does anybody use either the Lortone QT12 {12 lb} or the
    Thumlers A-R12 [12 lb] tumblers for their brass cleaning?
    Are they any good and do they do a good job?
    Pros and cons is welcomed advise.
    Thanks

    I have 2 RCBS tumblers and 1 Thumlers. I like the Thumlers the best. It is as quiet as the RCBS, but cleans the brass alot quicker. I have also had a Frankford Arsenal that was quicker than the RCBS tumblers but was way too loud. I could hear upstairs when it was running.
