A mate has been in the shop today with a load of .338 cases done in one, with the ss media. Wow.
They were actually better than new.

Mine is on it's way as well.

DaddyPig and myself have placed an order

Cheaper than I thought and the results look good.

Ultrasonic works well, but the polishing after with corn media makes them dusty.

Seems like a lot less faffing.

I read about it some time ago on Accurate Shooter but haven't known anyone with the system so I could see the results.

You do actually know that they are shit and don't work, they were made in China and will catch fire and burn your house down, they are also dangerous to small children and cats as the rotate so fast that they will rip your limbs off as soon as look at you.

I see a future where you pay £160 plus VAT and duty for something that they bought in India for £12 and so did I.

Mine is at DaddyPig's house.

I believe DaddyPig has been tumbling his brass today, so I'm just wating for a photo of nice shiny new brass.

Well I think the results speak for themselves....

On the left, brand new cases, middle, tumbled in corncob for 5 hours with Frankford Arsenal brass polish and right, tumbled 3 hours in Stainless Media, a drop of Fairy Liquid and Lemshine..

The STM cases have a silky lustre to them making the traditionally tumbled ones look down right dull! The primer pockets and insides are perfectly clean too..

Make sure you use a pH neutral WUL, I got mine from the Chefs at work.

After a ratchet through the rest of the brass, we couldn't find any others with pins stuck in them


Looks like a flash hole uniforming session will be needed

You may get the odd pin stuck in hole but if you use a separator to drain them and make sure you give them a good tumbling, after a few sessions you'll get fewer and fewer sticking.  Its definitely worthwhile checking the flash holes though and you'll get far far few with pins in than you would corn cob media stuck.

If you don't check them and leave any pins in when you seat a fresh primer you'll be alerted to their presence by an audible alarm, if you are deaf do it in the dark and a bright flash will also alert you of any problems.

Had 3 out of 82 cases with a pin 'bridged' in the neck, but no flash hole 'stickies'...
Link Posted: 2/13/2011 12:02:46 AM EDT
The bridging will reduce provided you ditch the pins that get stuck.

A thing of beauty it is too....

Even comes with a U.K. 3 pin plug...

First batch of cases through - a random selection of various really dirty old brass. (Most of the 44 stuff was a stained soot grey colour) The results are quite amazing!

I need to sort out a more efficient routine for emptying the thing, separating the pins, brass, & water though!
