Stupid question that has been covered MANY times, but I cant find a thread on it right now and I just cant remember.

Which media do you use for cleaning and which do you use for polishing: walnut or corncob?

Walnut to clean; corn cob to polish.



Or stainless to clean and polish.

Corn cob does both just fine, walnut will do both as well it just doesn't put the shine on the brass that corn cob does. Add Nu Finish car polish to either to get more shine.

I gave up on walnut, the pet litter stuff is just too dusty for my liking. I just use treated corn cob now.

That's why you buy the walnut for birds... nearly dust free as most high $$ birds don't do well with dust.

 






Or just go with wet stainless and be done with it.




Once you get wet, you'll never go back.

There seems to be a lacking of useable media in the pet shops around here, since I am never able to fins the stuff usually mentioned on here.



Wet tumbling to me is a huge PITA. Hell, I don't even use my 6.5L untrasonic cleaner for brass because just the feat of drying the brass after it gets wet is too big of an undertaking to me. Dry tumble, sift, done, it doesn't get any easier than that.
