TUMBLERS
Tumbler Jewellery rotary tumbler

Small, easy to use, high quality and great value for money rotary tumbler polisher. This highly recommended tumbler comes with a plastic 2lb (about 700gm) barrel with vanes. Vanes act like paddles on the inside of the barrel, ideal for jewellery tumbling as they help to move the jewellery around and polish it faster.

The whole unit measures 143mm x 122mm x 205mm. The CE-marked fully-enclosed motor is rated at 230V/15W, so you can use a regular mains socket. It comes with a 1.8 metre cable, ending in a UK plug. Since the tumbler uses about as much power as a fridge bulb, the cost of using it is only a few pence a day.

The plastic barrel revolves on two rollers and there is a roller end-stop which stops the barrel from falling off the rollers. The plastic barrel has a push-fit seal, if it is difficult to get off and on, simply put it in warm water to soften it. The tumbler has plastic feet to stop it from scratching or moving around.

As you can see in the photo, the barrel included uses the full width of the tumbler body, so you can't use a larger or two smaller barrels. This size barrel is often called a half-size, or 2lb barrel.

To tumble silver you will also need stainless steel shot and barrelling compound. The barrelling compound helps keep your stainless steel shot rust free. The 100% stainless steel shot is made up from different shapes, balls, planetoids, and large pins. To keep the shot clean and rust free, simply rinse after use and keep completely immersed in water with a little barreling compound.

If you're not sure about barrel sizes: we have used the 2lb barrel in our classes, which are often around 10 students, and have never had any problems fitting everything in.

Tumblers are sent with a courier - shipping is free - a signature is required on delivery.

Tumbler Junior rotary tumbler for jewellery

Another small, easy to use, rotary tumbler polisher. This is also a high quality tumbler which should last you for a long time. This is the easiest way to give your silver pieces a beautiful polished sparkly shine. Just put them in the tumbler together with water and steel shot, and leave for anything between 1-6 hours, and they'll come out super shiny.
For a complete kit, suitable for tumbling silver, you need to choose the body, a barrel, steel shot and barelling compound.
You can fit two 1.5lb barrels or one 3lb barrels on the tumbler, choose the combination you like. Plastic is much easier to keep clean, whilst rubber is easier to open and close, and are quieter.

The 100% stainless steel shot is made up from different shapes, balls, planetoids, and large pins. To keep the shot clean and rust free, simply rinse after use and keep completely immersed in water with a little barreling compound.

If you're not sure about barrel sizes - we use a 2lb barrel in our classes (the tumbler above), which are often around 10 students.

BARRELS FOR USE WITH JUNIOR TUMBLER
Barrel Rubber barrel 3lb

Rubber barrel is a lot quieter than a plastic drum, so good if you have to share a small space with your tumbler. It is also easier to open and close. It can be slightly harder to keep clean than a plastic barrel. You can fit one 3lb barrel on the Junior tumbler. Please note, this is quite a large size - we use a 2lb barrel in our classes, which are often around 10 students, and so far we've never had problems fitting things in.

Shot Stainless Steel Shot - 1kg

Pack of mixed shot shapes: balls, planetoids, and large pins. The shapes are 100% stainless steel. However, to best care for your shot and to keep it clean and rust free, simply rinse after use and keep completely immersed in water with a little barreling compound.
This is one whole kilo of shot, so enough for a 3lb barrel. Having said this, I use 1kg in the 1,5lb barrel as I mainly tumble smaller pieces, like rings and pendants. Ideally the barrel should be 50-75% when jewellery, shot, and water is added, to get the best polishing action.

Shot Barrelling compound - 200gm

Use this high quality barrelling compound to help keep your stainless steel and carbon steel shot rust free and in good shape. The compound also helps to bring out a nice shine in your silver. About a tablespoon is enough for the 3lb barrel. Sometimes called burnishing soap or tumbling soap.

Express Tumbler Express Tumbler

This super-fast Express Tumbler comes with a 6-sided clear polypropylene barrel - and it is f-a-s-t. The barrel takes about 1 kg shot. The motor has 5 speeds with an auto-reverse facility (it will run, pause, then run backwards, pause, run forward, pause, and so on) which speeds up the polishing a lot, and a 60 minute timer.

We now use this in classes due to its speed: in less than 30 minutes we get a high shine on silver, perfect in a class situation where you have limited time.

Opening and closing the barrel is extremely fast and easy due to the simple to use quick-release lever lock catch. A metal bar with a lever attached holds the lid closed. To open you simply undo the lever, remove the bar, and the lid can be opened.

Comes with a barrel. To tumble silver you will also need stainless steel shot and barrelling compound (not included). The barrelling compound helps keep your stainless steel shot rust free. The 100% stainless steel shot is made up from different shapes, balls, planetoids, and large pins. To keep the shot clean and rust free, simply rinse after use and keep completely immersed in water with a little barreling compound. Purchase the shot and compound at the same time as the tumbler, and you'll save money.
