Sold by the 2 pound bag, this highly polished stainless steel shot mixture known as the "Jeweler's Mix" is a combination of three shapes: diagonal, round and pin. Each does a different job in burnishing metals to a bright finish in the minimum amount of time.Tumbler and Burnishing Compound sold separately, OR purchase all items as a kit.
BEFORE TUMBLING YOUR JEWELRY
TUMBLING YOUR JEWELRY OR METAL
Place your shot and jewelry in the barrel, then cover with water (about an inch above the contents) and add 2-10 drops of Shine Brite. Place barrel on tumbler and tumble away! Check your water every 20 minutes or so. If it is dirty, rinse and refill with fresh water and fresh Shine Brite.
This is a 3lb capacity tumbler. The combined weight of the water, your jewelry and the shot needs to be below 3lbs. If your barrel is not turning you likely have too much shot in there. You want your tumbler to be able to spin!
I tend to tumble for 30 or so minutes. To harden Jump Rings, tumble for at least an hour.
