Designed for years of trouble free service, this 3 pound capacity tumbler is perfect for cleaning and burnishing your sterling silver, silver filled, copper, brass, gold and gold filled jewelry and jump rings. The barrel is made from a hard rubber to minimize noise. Weighs 5 pounds.
Stainless steel shot and tumbler sold separately. Click here to purchase a bag of stainless steel shot to use with your 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.
Please read the manufacturer's pamphlet (included with tumbler) for proper care and maintenance of your tumbler.
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 my Lortone tumbler! It polishes up my projects with stainless steel shot and a few drops of Dawn, no chemicals required. Noise isn't too bad and for a polish only takes a few minutes to accomplish.
Leaves my jewelry so bright and shiny! Removes tarnish and the white cast I get after pickling my sterling silver. Great product!
Did the cleaning cycle on the tumbler first, and then ran a tumble on some items that sure needed polishing... Tumbler is great - hope to have many happy years of polishing from it! But also a shout out to the Beaducation Team who packed and shipped my order...seriously...great job! And as far as all of the packing material, it's living another life as packing material for our shipments where I work.
Oh my goodness how did I survive without this tumbler! Its so easy to set it up and use and its QUIET! Jewelry comes out looking so pristine and professional looking!
so glad I got this. No problems at all.
I am thrilled with this tumbler! I had purchased one before (from another seller) and it never worked right. When I purchased this one I was so excited to see my shiny items when I opened it up only after 30 mins! ?
