I have found after a few years of cleaning brass for reloading (and cleaning rust and gunk from tools) a rotary works better than a wobbler. I don't wet tumble so I didn't buy into the high priced "waterproof" tumblers. I am using a double drum HF rock tumbler with a "custom" drum (a plastic jar a bit over twice the capacity of the HF drums combined). I sold all my reloading equip years ago because of a messy divorce and my good tumbler went too.

Not to worry the advise wasn't wasted, and if this one doesn't work out will upgrade. Retirement introduces some more limits.

Yea I am eyeballing that and I am finding myself going conservative just thinking about it.

Thumblers probably makes the best . They started out in making tumblers for rock polishing which run for weeks at a time . The motors are made to last . I have a Thumbler model B bought in 1967 for polishing rocks . It's still running after 50 years of polishing rocks and brass. I would look at one of their vibratory models...the professional model is the heavy duty in brass polishers.

Yes the Ultra Vibe. Never thought to try the rotary type.

The UV I have beat the old Lyman all hollow.

I like my Dillon 750 but I don't use it much anymore since getting a FART.
