Tumbler media/shot
« on: June 28, 2016, 07:36:31 PM »
Hey guys. Just wondering what everyone uses in their tumblers for polishing screws, nuts, bolts and so fourth?
I just got one and have no idea what to use. Or where to get it.
Cheers

Gun shops are the go. I use corn media which works good for me, some use walnut shell. Trial and error
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

This is where I buy my media - http://www.shooters.com.au

Go to Bunnings and look in the cleaning isle for the Turtle Polish media - I think I've provided the link somewhere. It Shitz on flitz.

The turtle anti swirl stuff you put me onto works great, thanks.

And chuck into the media a splash of novus 2 or Silvo or whatever you have for polishing.

I use corn cob media from a gun shop just off Guildford Rd in Mt Lawley / Bayswater and put a squirt of liquid Autosol in with it. Do not get the "tufnut" media that is treated with rouge they also have there as it stains your parts red.

Cheers mate. ^^^ I'll go to my local gun shop and see if they have some. Otherwise I'll have to order it or come up to Perth.
