Highly polished stainless steel shot mixture known as the "Jewelers Mix" is a combination of three shapes: diagonal, round and pin. Each does a different job in burnishing metals to a bright finish in the minimum amount of time.

Stainless steel requires only occasional cleaning and gives great uniformity. And since it's stainless steel, it is rust and corrosion resistant and able to stand up to strong compounds.

Sold in a 2 pound bag.

Tumbler and Shot sold separately. Click here to view our Lortone 3lb Tumbler.

BEFORE TUMBLING YOUR JEWELRY

  • When first receive your shot, you will need to clean it. Tumble your shot with distilled water (about 1" above the shot) and about a tsp of Shine Brite for 15 minutes. Drain, rinse and repeat. This will remove any oils or dirt left on the shot from the manufacturing process. If the water doesn't drain clean after the 2nd run, repeat again.

TUMBLING YOUR JEWELRY OR METAL

Place your shot and jewelry in the barrel, then cover with water (about an inch above the contents) and add 2-10 drops of Shine Brite.  Place barrel on tumbler and tumble away! Check your water every 20 minutes or so.  If it is dirty, rinse and refill with fresh water and fresh Shine Brite.

  • Because everyone's water is different, we recommend only tumbling with distilled water.
  • Always rinse tumbler barrel and shot after every use and allow to air dry.
  • Do not store shot in the tumbler barrel. This is to ensure that the shot and barrel stay dry between uses.

This is a 3lb capacity tumbler. The combined weight of the water, your jewelry and the shot needs to be below 3lbs.  If your barrel is not turning you likely have too much shot in there.  You want your tumbler to be able to spin!   

I tend to tumble for 30 or so minutes. To harden Jump Rings, tumble for at least an hour.

I love this shot mix. Just follow the directions to clean it before using it and you are ready to go. I love the finish it gives my jewelry. I only wish I would have purchased it a year ago!
