I'd like to build something larger than the Frankfort Arsenal tumbler, but there just isn't enough time. I have so much brass that I don't need to turn it around quickly. This means I can shoot until I have thousands of rounds to clean. Has any Forum Members built a wet tumbler?

Chas.
Why not use one of those small job site concrete mixers? I’m only half joking...

The guy who owned the range my Dad use to take me to sold ammo he reloaded. He actually did just that for range brass he picked up when he had a large enough batch.

I am 78 going on 79 and have other problems but cannot get a DR to have my blood tested for lead.
I knew one guy who had lead poisin and he ran a Linotype machine for 20 more years and retired for 10 more.
Here is how to get tested if doctor won't order it.

You can also find companies which will do a hair test.

Re: Need to clean really tarnished brass?

I use a 3 drum rock tumbler. I use whisk and cream of tar tar. Only range brass I clean is pistol brass and the occasional find of once shot .233 or .308 brass. Works well. I rinse with distiled water and air dry ( very low humidity out here).

Re: Need to clean really tarnished brass?

I see the pics just fine. My question is, did your brass start out as tarnished before you clean them or just once shot brass which you own?
