I had a Hornady one and didn't like it. I went back to dry tumbling with corn cob media or walnut shells just putting in a few drops of brass polish. I just throw in a dryer sheet with my brass to catch dust.
So that FA wet tumbler is still on the list to get.You may find that it’ll work great for your needs.
I clean about 400 .223/556 cases and 1k 9mm each time in my FA wet tumbler.
We all have different options.
Hahaha… so I’ve been using lemishine and I put my fail zero BCG in it. I run a suppressor on that SBR so it was filthy. It turned it pink! . I was like whatever, it will just get filthy again. I wondered what caused that.Another wet tumbler fan here. I use a small amount of citric acid and armor-all car wash along with the pins.
The wax keeps the brass shiny longer.
Just a LITTLE citric acid/Lemishine is fine too much and you will have pink brass. I don’t think it hurts it and it will shine back the next time.
I’ve ran several loads of brass through it without a problem but prob didn’t add that much. I’m still going to get a Frankfort Rotary Tumbler (FART) bc I know it will do better.How much lemi-shine are you using? Too much will turn brass pink so that’s probably the reason. What do the instructions say to use for cleaning parts?
I use about a dime size poured in my palm, it measured out to a 9mm case so that’s what I use for a full load of brass.
