All our tumblers are top quality machines made in the USA. All tumblers have a 1 year manufacturers warranty.
The vibratory tumblers should be used 75-90% full.
This means about 4lbs of walnut. The amount of steel shot you need would exceed the rated weight capacity of the tumbler. The amount of media will vary a bit depending on what you are tumbling.
Steel shot is used for "burnishing" this make the surface smoother but dirty. Walnut is used for cleaning and polishing. Typically the wire used for rings is already smooth and all you need to do is clean and polish.
Walnut is always used dry, steel media is typically used with a small amount of water and detergent.
