rrawhide asks if there a recommended RPM for turning/polishing brass?
Yes, about 60 to 120 rpm for the tumbler; at least 1 revolution per second to no more than 2 revolutions per second. This is for tumblers of 10 to 12 inches in diameter.
Any faster with media and cases spinning around starts getting into the accident range.
A tumbler rotating at 700 rpm turns almost 12 revolutions per second. Way too fast. Is someone getting a vibrator mixed up with a tumbler for what to call it?
