    Lots of problems (Posted on 7/7/2014)

    Tumbler showed up and was unpacked. Sat down with the instruction manual and read cover to cover. Brought bathroom scale down cellar to make sure I didn't go over 18lbs. Loaded as directed. Proper amount of water and chemical. Started tumbler and left for 4 hours. When I came back the lid had vibrated loose and the fluid had splashed out onto finished parts that were on the bench near tumbler. Put lid back on. Tightened till top of stud was level with top of nut. Started and watched as little by little the nut vibrated loose. Ended up using duct tape after tightening nut. It has worked so far to keep the top lid on. Used it this past weekend. After 4 hours of use, fluid leaking out of center bowl stud inside. It covered the base and more parts on my bench next to it. I am thinking of double nutting the inside stud the next time I use it. Now, it does an OK job but it takes plenty of time to do it's thing. The media fills voids in some parts and once in there that area does not get cleaned. Make sure you get all staining and rust off with media because the dry shine does not remove stains as claimed. It does give a luster or shine to the parts but does no cleaning. Takes a long time to clean. Media is used up fairly quick and Eastwood can't seem to keep it in stock. The media is expensive at the rate it disappears and will need to be added. The lid gasket started to fall off the cover after using the machine a few times and I ended up putting a small amount of silicone on the lip to keep the gasket to in place.

    First unit received failed after 10 minutes of operation. Eastwood promptly replaced the defective unit with a new one. Incredibly loud. Cannot be used when people are in the Shop. It cleans parts properly, but only with very long tumble times.
    Not for rust removal or serious cleaning (Posted on 4/18/2014)

    I decided to try this machine because of the large quantity of small parts and hardware. I hoped that even if it took many hours to do the job at least I could get my parts clean. After 7 hours using the green "rust busting" media there was absolutely no improvement. So, I thought,"maybe it would be good for polishing parts that are basically clean, but need to be burnished. So I switched to the polishing media. Again, after many hours, no improvement. Sorry to have to say this, I wanted it to work. But it doesn't.
