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.
Please read the manufacturers pamphlet (included with Tumbler) for proper care and maintenance of your Tumbler.
For best results, we recommend putting in about 1.5lbs of Stainless Steel Shot, your jewelry or jump rings and a 5 drops of Shine Brite Burnishing Compound. Fill with water 1" above your media. I tend to tumble for 30 or so minutes. To harden Jump Rings, tumble for at least an hour.
Do not over fill your Tumbler with material. If your barrel weighs more than 3lbs, it will not move.

I love my Lortone tumbler! It polishes up my projects with stainless steel shot and a few drops of Dawn, no chemicals required. Noise isn't too bad and for a polish only takes a few minutes to accomplish.
Leaves my jewelry so bright and shiny! Removes tarnish and the white cast I get after pickling my sterling silver. Great product!
Did the cleaning cycle on the tumbler first, and then ran a tumble on some items that sure needed polishing... Tumbler is great - hope to have many happy years of polishing from it! But also a shout out to the Beaducation Team who packed and shipped my order...seriously...great job! And as far as all of the packing material, it's living another life as packing material for our shipments where I work.
