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 mirror 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.

BEFORE TUMBLING YOUR JEWELRY
- When first using your tumbler or shot, tumble your stainless steel shot with distilled water (enough to cover the shot) and about a tsp of Shine Brite for 20 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.
- Because everyone's water is different, we recommend only tumbling with distilled water.
- Always rinse tumbler barrel and shot after every use.
- Do not store shot in the tumbler barrel. This is to ensure that the shot and barrel stay dry between uses.
It is best to fully rinse your shot and let air dry when you receive it and after each use. You will only need to use 1-1.5 pounds of shot in your tumbler. Don't forget that your blanks and jewelry already weigh something too! You want your tumbler to be able to spin!

Have not had the chance to use this yet, but, I am very excited about it. Glad I got it will have to watch the video again to run it for the first time.
