The tumbling action helps the media remove corrosion from all the pockets and recesses. Best of all, the vibrating tumbler does all the work. Simply add the media and hardware into the bowl and switch the unit on. For even better results, use with liquid additives such as our Eastwood Rust Dissolver to really remove rust and corrosion with ease. Eastwood units are built to last for years with a sturdy, heavy duty base, high-speed bearings, and high torque motors with high temp windings for extended operation and fast results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Addition to the Restoration Project!! My 5 Lb. Tumbler arrived yesterday. I was very anxious to see how well this would work. I threw in a handful of rusty bolts and nuts with the green media and some water and let it rip for 5-6 hours. I was amazed at the sludge that accumulated at the bottom of the canister. After drying the bolts and letting them go through the polishing process over night I am impressed! Each part is clean and bright. It did not remove the paint on a few but that did not surprise me. It was the rust I was concerned about. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Time Saver I purchased the 5 Lb Tumbler and was happy to see how well it worked. Then there was a little disappointment. The plastic knob separated from the serrated screw portion. I contacted Eastwood and along with the knob a whole bowel was sent as a replacement. Here is what I learned after receiving the new bowel. The center bolt is too long. I went to my local Homie Depot and purchased 3 more rubber gaskets and 2 washer. I put two rubber washer sandwiched between the metal washers and the same on top of the bowel along with the wing nut instead of the plastic knob. Now 2 days later its working great! I let it run over night in the garage on the floor and it did its job as advertised. Prior to the little adjustment with the rubber washers is was a bit noisy. Now I barley hear it!!. Since most of my parts are small I think I’ll purchase another so that I don’t have to clean out the bowel to change cleaning media.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product I like the ability to get replacement media, bowls ect. it is a problem at other stores. Put your items in and let it run sometimes 24 hours does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked great Got this to use on some rusty nuts and bolts. I used the rust dissolver on them first then placed them in the tumbler. Let it run for a couple of hours while I was outside doing other chores. Came back in to clean bolts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Great at Cleaning Parts and Even Coins I've had this for about four years now and used it twice. I believe it has over 50 hrs. runtime on it. It is well made, is to take apart to clean and can hold a lot of small items. My only complaint is the lead will vibrate lose, causing leaks and a mess on the outside of the Tumbler bowl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good but use some adjustments by the factory 1- it should say “ don’t run this for more that 5 hours at a time. The heat transfers from the motor, through the center screw and the plastic knob gets very hot. 2- the center bolt is too long and you have to use 2-3 washers prior to tightening the plastic knob or the bowl will spin. ( previous review experienced the same thing) Other than those 2 issues seems to work pretty good. At this point I have onl6 used the green media, let’s see how the dry shine media works and I’ll get back to ya. It seems I’ll still have to polish everything with a buffing wheel, but we’ll see.

I'm hoping to use this on little hardwood blocks for puzzle making; may I put my own sand in there instead ?

Asked by: catherine
Yes you can use your own media. We recommend corn cob media for most wood tumbling.

how can I get rid of the massive amount of dust created when using your green triangular media? It packs into corners so tight that corrosion is not removed and it needs to be scraped out. Now the bowl also has a large amount of dust in it. How do i clean

Asked by: GAT1
You can add enough water to wet the parts and media, but not so much that standing water is visible to minimize the dust.

What is the operating room temperature for this? I want to use it in our unheated garage, where the temperature is normally between 20 to 30 degrees.

Asked by: itsallgood
If you plan on adding water to help increase the cutting media then this should not be used below 35F.
