In this video, I present and discuss a large rotary tumbler that I built using mostly salvage materials that I was able to get free or very cheaply. Although the video focusses on the tumbler design and doesn’t really go into its uses, tumblers like this have a variety of applications in reloading, ranging from […]
Friendships and relationships develop from common values, trust and sacrifice. And so it has been for the nations of the USA and Australia on many occasions when the two countries stood shoulder to shoulder through the decades. But what has this to do with wet tumbling…?? FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting videos on YouTube in 2012. He […]
Trying out Lemi Shine to clean brass. A lot of people recommend trying it.
Checking if drying brass in a food dehydrator will get rid of water spots and dry the brass quicker than my old way of doing it.

MCK brought me some goodies to TN

2 weeks later I’ve made my decision after trying a few different methods/calibers & quantities. Results are....She’s a keeper but I see room for improvements from FA. Mainly being rubber lined.
Trying out the harbor freight rock tumbler for the first time with 9mm cases. Can’t wait to get some stainless steel pins to add to it.

The performance of my wet tumbler has been slowly fading, so it was time for some new stainless tumbling media.
In my latest video I will share a recipe to make a great brass cleaning solution by your own. You can do this within minutes and save a lot of money.
Picked up the Harbor Freight Tumbler yesterday with a 20% off coupon. I have been playing around with it using BB's for media. Is this a good idea???
For years I have used several dry media vibrators and tumblers, and none of them have lasted, so I determined to make my own tumbler and try wet pin tumbling.
If you're a reloader, chances are one of your biggest goals is to save money and shoot more for less. While most of us have analyzed the price of equipment and components, have you ever stopped to think about the materials you use?
Trying out new SS pins in the wet tumbler for the first time. Coats Brothers Firearms
Frankford Arsenal Platinum Series Rotary Tumbler While vibratory cleaners certainly do a good job, the fact remains that if you really want to get your brass looking factory new, there’s no better option than a wet tumbler with stainless steel media. Until recently, the odds of coming across a wet tumbler at your local gun […]
Vibratory Case Cleaners vs Wet Case Tumblers With so many decisions to be made about presses, dies and components, how you clean your brass probably isn’t something you’ve given a whole lot of thought too; particularly if you’re just learning to reload for the first time.

I apologize for my somewhat cynical humor in this video. This media separator was not a product I was especially excited to get, but it has worked well and is superior to what I was doing before I got it. I think it is a good product and if you have a Wet tumbler, it is really a must have. I followed the manufacturers directions, but if you put it in a large pan or in a bathtub with the screen part on the bottom it might work better. This is a good product, as Frankford Arsenal makes some really nice products, and hopefully my video does it justice.
