So don’t damage hard-to-find, small components with an abrasive blaster, wire wheel, or wire brush. Eastwood takes the worry out of cleaning up small parts with custom-tailored Vibratory Tumbler Kits.
Here are some basic guidelines for successful parts finishing that's as easy as 1-2-3...just follow a few easy rules:
1. The parts-to-media mix ratio should be approximately 70% media to 30% parts.
2. Use the right amount of water when using wet-process media. Too much water hampers vibratory action. The media should be wet, with no standing water in the bowl.
3. Periodically check the progress. Stop when the desired finish has been achieved.
Tip: Add a teaspoon of Metal Wash to wet tumbling media for improved cleaning action.
The material you are cleaning and polishing determines the finishing media you need. Vibratory tumblers are for small parts made of aluminum, brass, copper, stainless steel, steel, or plastics. Eastwood has chosen our media carefully for very fine surface conditioning.
Eastwood’s plastic media are used in precision metal industries. The fine surface finishes achieved in tumbling are ideal for pre-plate, pre-anodize, or decorative polishing. Eastwood’s plastic media provide excellent surface contact for thorough surface refinement with little user involvement. Use over and over again until totally depleted.
For medium cutting action, choose brown pyramid media
For light cutting action, choose green pyramid media
For a hi-luster, choose Dri-Shine® corncob-based media impregnated with a proprietary polishing compound.
