Thread: What's best in wet tumblers?

    What's best in wet tumblers?

    Has anyone any experience of these tumblers? The Cherry Heaven On-Line Shop: The Kitiki Mini-Kiln any thoughts/recommendations? Thanks JCS

    Spud sells them. I think a few people on here can give some feedback.

    I have the Rebel 17, it's better finished than the Thumblers with a powder coated drum (inside as well as outside) and roller bearings, excellent bit of kit.

    The JD Reloading kit comes with a magnet stick (very useful!) and also the full 2.2Kg of steel pins, Spud's may be a mis-print but it says it only comes with 1Kg??.
    There's room for all Gods creatures ........... right next to the mash and gravy

    I got a Thumlers tumbler just before the Rebel became available - Although the Thumlers is ok - It works fine and does a great job. But by the look of it, the Rebel is better made & should last longer as it is better engineered. (It's cheaper too!) - I'd have bought the Rebel if it had been available.

    Phaedra - Are you sure the bearings are rollers? I thought they are ball race bearings. - Either way they will be better than the nylon bush plain bearings on the Thumlers.

    I have a Thumbler one, my only complaint is the amount of time it takes to clean up after use.
    Once all the brass is out it's another hour of cleaning and drying the pins before your done, a lot
    of effort to clean smaller quantities of brass.
    So I have just bought a 5lb rubber drum which will hold a kilo of pins and about a 100 .223 cases.
    Makes a far more sense to me when all you do is a 100 cases at a time.

    Hi Neil
    Why do you want to dry the pins? They are stainless. I just leave mine wet.

    Not really, the tumbler is used in the kitchen and stored in the lounge, also the drum is mild steel so will rust if left wet.
