Polishing Grit and
1) Buy quality
Good tumbling results starts with a good machine. Take your time and
find a dealer that will help you decide on the correct model for
what you plan to tumble. Resist the temptation to buy just any
closeout model - even if it's a LORTONE.
2) Find the right size tumbler
Even though all tumblers do the same
basic job, the size can still affect the results. Not only do larger
require more rock to operate efficiently,
they also consume more grit and polish. Buy a small tumbler if you
are just getting started or have primarily small material.
Buy a mid-size tumbler if you need to tumble larger stones or have
larger amounts. For production runs, choose a commercial unit.
3) Build a
relationship with a dealer
Find a reputable dealer that spends time with you, listens to your
needs and helps you through trouble spots.
