- Eastwood 18 lb Tumbler
I want to polish the heads on stainless bolts, or at least get them mostly polished to do a quick final on a buffing wheel. I bought the tumbler and ran it on about 4 #'s of bolts using dry shine media. Not much difference after 24 hours. What can I try?
I want to use one of these tumblers to remove sharp edges from machined aluminum parts. And reduce stress risers. Do you think this will do the job? All parts will be debured before putting parts in the tumbler.
Can liquid carburetor soak cleaner be used to clean carburetors? will it damage the bowl? Can a second bowl be purchased?
can you clean and polish aluminum carb body's ? I have some Datsun SU carbs that I would like to clean up will it remove any aluminum that could damage the inside fitment of the slides
One of the videos, "How To Clean Parts, Coins, Rifle Casings & Shells with Vibratory Tumblers from The Eastwood Company", at 2:11 states that the 18lb unit comes with 2 bowls. Is that correct?
Will it ruin the finish of the bolts if they are zinc coated?
Can I run ceramic hevy cut media in this machine?
What is the tube attached to the Bowl for?

Vibratory Tumblers offer thorough, gentle cleaning - Automatically - Now you can thoroughly clean and polish small pieces and hardware without the risk of getting them "launched" by a wire wheel. Gentle vibratory tumbling action with the Green Light-Cut Media removes rust from nuts and bolts without rounding edges. Simply stop the tumbler when parts are de-rusted. A brilliant luster can then be achieved by using the Dry Shine Media. The vibratory action works more quickly than a rotating tumbler.
Vibratory tumblers thoroughly clean and polish small parts and hardware, leaving you free to work on other projects. Use the green media to gently remove paint; use the corncob media to lightly polish. When the parts reach the desired luster, they’re ready to be put back in service. The heavy duty vibratory tumbler system includes: 1 bowl, 7 lbs of paint removing media, 7 lbs polishing media, instructions.
