Okay so let's open her up using my handy. Dandy kershaw scallion we open the box. And we'll be fine on top is a sippy pan. And then your six pounds of corn cob. Media and under that is one well packed. And inside of the tumbler is your. Metallic brass polish so let's go ahead. And get this puppy set up let's see if we can't polish some brass okay I've. Wiped out the inside there was some residue i don't know if that's from packing or from window during assembly. Because it looks like there's some. Oil there where they assembled via the carriage bolt they're in the washer but. The instructions yes I've read the instructions say to fill the bowl about two-thirds full of your dry corn cob media. Yeah it looks about two-thirds full. I'm guessing yeah i say it's about right. And then set the tumbler on a flat. Concrete surface I'm going to move it from here and move down to the floor. Eventually and it says if you want to. Add your two cupfuls of that brass. Bright polish to each load oops if. Desired so let's do that right now one. Cap full two cupfuls okay not quite as. Clean as i would like it to be but hey it'll work okay add brass c capacity. Chart capacity for two to three is 450 i. Don't know if you can see that right here see if i can get that in focus here. We go a thousand nine millimeters 645. Acp 450 223 or 250 30.6 i have probably. About 150 of them here so you want to. Add your brass. And put the lid on and of course tighten. The lid and let's go ahead and put this. On a concrete surface like it says okay i found a spot on the floor that's close enough to a plug and so i've went ahead. And set it all it plugged it all in made sure that everything's good to go the sheet says if you're just going to clean the brass go with about 30 to 60 minutes but I'm going to polish the brass you want to go more like several hours so that's going to do i put gumby up there to you know give a little ride i know it's not gonna last very long up there but let's go ahead see what happens. No it's like he's swimming oh that's. Awesome go gumby go come to go well I'll come. Back at several hours and see how it turns out okay it's been about i guess. Three hours i guess cops assemble and no company didn't end up staying on their i just put them right back on their see what else he would do. But there seems to be yeah okay. Actually it's pretty quiet well we could. Not hear it from inside the house in the. Garage so it's actually i thought so. Let's go ahead and dump out the media see how clean the brass is ok comes with. This really neat handy-dandy sifter pan this is just a cat litter box container. That we've used it's empty now well be. Have a couple cats so these are actually quite handy for a number of other things as well but let's go ahead and try. Sipping let's see what we come up with i. Guess i could try something yeah all. Right so it's like panning for gold. I worked out really well so next thing. I'm not gonna go ahead and put the clean brass in a separate container just so i. Can separate it kind of figure out when they're doing it next so obviously you still have stuff in the brass but if you look that's actually. Really clean it was actually very dirty around the case mouth obviously because they've been fired the primers are still in them i didn't want to go ahead and. Deep prime and lube dirty cases so I'll. Say they turned out most of these are actually lake city brass because i got these from most of these are my georgia arms ammo box already once fired brass. From georgia arms but like i said it's. All lake city here's a couple this is i believe a winchester so it's a little. But mix but mostly it's going to be the. It's gonna be the lake city brass so I'd. Go through this. All right of course this media is. Reusable it's not like you use it once and you gotta toss it so and save as. Much as oh yeah now as far as the brass polisher it says to add some every time. You do it so i think not really well. There're the media that i have used and i. Think I'm gonna go ahead and do some 45 acp brass cases here my 223 right in. Cases you can see the primers distilling them and let me tell you something this. I think did an amazing job there you. Now if you look really carefully you can see you know some you know spots. Where it's not perfectly clean i guess if i had left them in longer then i think was just a little under three hours it probably would have gotten it but like the case mouths were or. Especially on the neck area they were actually very dark very black. These look great so this is the cabala's. Model 400 vibratory case tumbler i got. The kit so like i said it pretties much came with everything including the media the polish of course the. Tumbler and the sifting basket which is kind of like panning for brass so i. Highly recommend it as far as longevity of course I've only used it once so but initial impressions. Are fantastic so you're thinking your. Getting what i think this was like um almost like 70 bucks i believe at. Cabala's it wasn't it was under a hundred well under 100 i know that much but if you're looking for a brass tumbler and wanted to get a starting kit. Starter kit this actually is very nice so thanks for watching and i think I'm gonna go clean more brass.
Frankford Arsenal® Brass-Cleaning Solution
Available: 32 oz.
Hey guys got an interesting product test today this is the frankfort arsenal brass cleaning solution so i just ran. Out of lemme shine that i was using to clean my brass and this is the last batch that i did with that it works pretty well it's let me shine appliance. Cleaner plus a couple drops of liquid soap like youtube and the internet. Recommends but yeah I'm curious to see. How this compares so I've got another bowl of dirty nine millimeter brass I'm gonna run it for two and a half hours the directions on this say to use distilled water I'm to keep to go out. And buy distilled water so i did run all of this water through the filter on my refrigerator so I'm gonna use that i measured it off to exactly 80 ounces at. The line here and to that I'm going to add two ounces of the liquid which I'm. Going to measure with three ounce cups. I'm gonna say that's about two ounces so. It's half an ounce for every 20 fluid ounces so that should be the correct. Amount. All right so here is the final result i. Have my opinion I'm curious to know what. Do you guys think i can clearly see a. Difference between these two hopefully. The camera will pick it up but i don't. No post a comment down below which do you think is the better looking brass. Have a good one thanks for watching.
Frankford Arsenal® Platinum Brass Dryer
Hey thanks for stopping by and checking out this video today we're taking a look at the frankfort arsenal tumbler and i. Gotta say this thing is impressive but this is not going to be a long time review i recently got this about two weeks ago so this is really like a first time use and comparison with what i. Started with which was this rock tumbler. Over here so you know you buy cheap you. Bag twice and i only started reloading about six months ago so this is my little champ and this did a lot of rounds but look at the damage to me having to pry open the lid and it's. Really it's not made for brass you know it's made for kids and rocks so does it. Work yeah it worked really well and it still works just fine so hers right. Along it can rumble off the table so I'm. Gonna test that today and see if this one will do the same thing now this was. A scratch and dent open box model from. Amazon so i got it for about 30 bucks off and was a little disappointed. Because it was the first warehouse deal. I got from amazon that was actually missing parts and so i contacted amazon said hey they're supposed to be steel. Pins in there, and they refunded me 40 bucks and was able to pick up some of. This that goes with it so overall i like. The fact that it has a timer that'll shut off automatically know this thing. Let's do a side-by-side sound comparison. First what we're getting into this i used to have in the house and my wife was like what is that. And it's really not that loud let's turn. On this one that's a lot louder. Quite the difference there but it doesn't matter out here because I've got the air conditioner running to dehumidifier running and all that stuff so the biggest thing about this is big. It is huge and definitely made for the. Task of cleaning brass so really like in. The big bold construction of this i mean. It just feels like it's gonna last forever nice grippy rubber inside of. Here and just the capacity alone i got a. Backup in camera to get this thing in frame the maximum capacity i could do in. The rock tumbler i was i could do little over actually about a 100 45 acp and it. Was really crowded so actually couldn't even do this batch by itself i had to this is the last thing i washed in that. So today we're going to oh and i weighed. This and did the math on it this is over a thousand cases of nine-millimeter we. Were just gonna dump that in and see how. It goes. Wow and oh i can't believe that there is. Plenty of room to spare with about 1,100. Of those in there so for a cleaner i. Started using this lemme shine mixed. With a couple drops of dish soap that. Works except for when this goes in the. Water it starts to fizz and bubble it can build up pressure so you have to let. It sits for a while so I'm just going to. Go ahead and dump in this whole thing. Pigs and they came with a free sample of. This detergent so I'm just going to use this whole thing and see how it works on. This it looks like kind of the same material as the let me shine. And these pins are great and i like that. This has a way to rinse it out when. You're done you can just dump it out. Water might actually need more water. That looks pretty good so nice mix and i. Just like to throw in just a little bit of dish soap so you don't know if that. Soap is going to fizz it all it doesn't. Look like it is so I'm just going to go. Ahead and seal this up and for fun we. Want to see what it looks like actually inside of it while it's running, so we're gonna throw a go pro in there and see. What it looks like on the inside good luck little go pro miss you. Let me go ahead mark on the feet anthony. Looks at all. Well i don't have a better solution all. Right it's getting dark out so I'm just gonna let this dry in the driveway well. It's not the shiniest grass in the world but it works i might run it again with. The different cleaners and this media magnate certainly helps out to remove. Any remaining pins so thanks as always. For watching have a great day.

Thumler's Tumbler Ultra Vibe 18 Tumbler
Peer reviews are always a popular topic. On the gun channels here on youtube but. Normally people are reviewing gear which they just recently got and it's. Basically show and tell for the most part and that's fine and dandy but occasionally it's nice to see a review of a product which someone has head for quite a while and that's what this is going to be I'm going to do a little review of this tumblers tumbler ultra. Vibe 18 cartridge case vibratory cleaner and I've owned this for at least 15. Years and actually i purchased this unit. Secondhand so I'm really not sure how old it is it could be as old as 25 years. Old for all i know i believe they've been making these tumblers for about 30. Years so i think I'm pretty well-versed. With this product to be able to speak on it now this is a vibratory case cleaner. As i mentioned and it's very heavy-duty. Construction now there's a lot of. Different case tumblers on the market, and they vary in price quite considerably, and they also vary in their construction and quality quite a bit and I've seen some of the cheaper tumblers. That are out there, and they're quite lightly built and of course the prices. Are quite cheap compared to this one these sell for about a hundred and. Eighty to two hundred dollars depending upon where you purchase them but i think. That's money that's very well spent because I've used this extensively for. As i said about 15 years or so and it saw us before i got it and it has never. Given me any problems at all so that's money that is you know well. Well spent i think i paid $100 for this. Secondhand which at the time seemed like a bit more than you know might have been. Justified but I'm quite happy that i spent that money back then because like i said its given me all those years of service so let's have a closer look at. This machine it's got a capacity of. About a gallon and a half is gallons. Which is 6 pounds of tumbling media they. Rated four and a total capacity of. Eighteen pounds with media and the brass. Added to it and that equates to somewhere between 200 and 700 cartridges. Cases depending upon of course the caliber and the size of cases i would. Probably refrain from putting too. Much in it because it does tend to slow down the cleaning action a little bit but i routinely tumble up to 500. Nine-millimeter cases in it without any particular problem at all know this is of course this is the ultra vibe 18 there. Are a couple of other tumblers in their vibratory cleaning range which are on. Each side of the case capacity wise. There's the model 10 which is smaller of. Course and the model 45 which is larger this is a nice size with a fairly decent. Capacity for cleaning now this unit as well. Has some features that motor is a. Thermally protected ball bearing motor. One thirtieth of a horsepower and it. Seems to run fairly quietly oh get the. Camera set up a little better here we'll have a closer look at some of the features of this tumbler okay the top of. The tumbler is held on with a wing nut on top of this threaded rod remove the. Wing nut take the top off there's a washer below that the washer has a. Backing on it a rubber backing on it and. One thing you'll notice right away when you compare this to most of the other tumblers which are cheaper is how heavy everything is on it quite a substantial. Piece of plastic for a lid and it's as well. Lined inside with a rubber liner to keep noise to a minimum which is a nice feature some of the cheaper tumblers do not have that type of feature they have a very thin plastic lid also the. Thickness of the polyethylene bowl quite a bit more substantial than a lot of those cheaper brands of tumbler now if. We look inside the machine here a little. Closer up here this one a little bit. There you can see that the bowl is held on by this once again by this threaded rod this runs down to the motor and the. Bowl can be removed if you needed to replace it for some reason or another some people will use have a couple of. These bowls though use one for liquid case cleaning and one. For dry case cleaning I've only ever had experience using the dry case cleaning method I'll just turn the machine on here you can see the action of it when it's running you can see the media roles. Around in a kind of cyclonic effect. Comes up from the outside rolls over and. Goes towards the center and carries the cartridge cases with it i got some nine-millimeter in here at the moment being clean and if you overload these. Machines they do not clean the brass but. As quickly so it's best to make sure that you don't put too much in them you want to make sure that there's that rotation of the media inside there to get a good effect. One thing about these machines is there's no on/off switch on them they start immediately when you plug them into the wall so one thing that i like to do is to use an appliance timer like. This is kind of like the lamp timers except it's got a little bit bigger rating and you've got a rating on. The back here that tells you the capacity that this timer will handle you. Want to buy one of these timers which will handle the rating of the motor so i. Basically like to plug the machine into one of these timers and then i can set. The timer up to run when I'm not around so now the list of the machine run although it's not really all that loud but it might as well run while I'm not here listening to it and then you can run it for whatever number hours you'd like to run it for so that's a one thing. That some of the other machines do have a switch on the cord really no big deal. One way or the other in my opinion whether they have that feature or not some people would like that i guess if you're setting these machines up in a place where it's hard to access the wall socket it's nice. To have the switch on the cord you could always put a switch on these cords if you really needed that feature moving down on the tumbler you'll see that it's mounted on top of this the bowl here is mounted on top of this metal stamping and between the metal base plate i guess. You'd call it and the bowl there is a. Foam rubber piece which is sandwiched in. Here that's to hold everything good and firmly and below that the whole thing is. Sitting on top of these springs a little. Closer there with the zoom so the whole. Think sits on top of these springs, and they are in turn on top of rubber like a. Rubber bushing inside that there's the. Rubber bushing underneath there so that. All keeps the vibration from moving down to the surface that you have the tumbler. Sitting on top of will go back out here. A little bit further and you can see that the base itself here is a steel. Stamping and the feet are rubber. Bought and they have a steel screw. Holding those in place so all in all. Really very robust construction and. We'll flip it over here a little bit. That's the cobwebs under there should clean that up before i turn the camera. On and there's the motor underneath so. The motor is a pretty decent-sized motor. For this type of application quite a bit. Bigger than you'll find on some of the smaller capacity cheap tumblers you can. See this is the weight which is clamped to the shaft that is actually what gives you the vibrating motion that that weight is clamped on and that makes the whole thing on ballast which when it spins gives you the shaking action and these are supposed to vibrate at about. 3,000 vibratory cycles per minute so see. If we can look at the can look at the. Motor tag there and it is osco. Industrial incorporated 115 volts. Thermally protected sealed ball bearing. So given lots of good service so far so. There you have it that's my review of my tumblers tumbler ultra vibe a product which is manufactured in the. United states and which has been manufactured there for about 30 years so. A really good reliable product if you're in the market for a cartridge case cleaner for reloading purposes i can. Highly recommend this product and i. Think if you get one you'll be quite happy with it talk to you later guys.

Cuz I've been running this tumblr well. I've owned the tumblr now for a little over two years and when i use it. Ranges anywhere between two and four i have ranted eight and a couple of times. Total of twenty-four hours the features. That i like about it first and foremost. I reload in my basement until i get a. Building I'm stuck here in my basement. Quietness this is really quiet on. The initial start up until the brass. Feels with media it's a little bit loud. But once it settles you cannot hear it. Run at all so i can set it and forget it and it's great number two quantity i. Wanted a tumblr that i would not have to. Upgrade to in the future i knew getting. Into reloading that i would accumulate. Tons of brass i didn't want a small. Tumblr that would only do a small amount. And extend my polishing time and end up. Either buying a second one or buying a bigger one so right off the bat i got. The largest one i could get i could afford and this one's on this one was on sale for i believe $65 midway usa it is. Made in the usa it is made by the lyman. Products corporation out of middletown. Connecticut this will hold I'm going off. Memory here about a thousand nine. Millimeter cases quite a few hundred 800. 945 you know 40s crap load of 220 threes. I never really counted but any rate. Let's talk more about the tumbler now. The bowl here the opening measures nine. And a half inches the widest point. The inside from here to here i probably. Won't be an exact measure yet, but we'll work with it 11 and a half inches and. Then the depth of it we're looking five. And a half inches deep it's a really. Great sized bowl it's made of great hard. Plastic and like i said i've run this. Numerous of time 24 hours i could touch. That here never felt hot there's no. Signs of any type of bubbling or anything like that it does come with the. Lid which sits on top washer and a. Wingnut just like any other tumblr the. Overall height of this from base to the. Top of the lid we're going to go with at. About 13 and a half inches tall and these are guesstimates you know i really. Can't get the ruler up next to it you might be able to check out the specs on the website so that equates to quite a. Bit of media now let's talk about media. When i put media into my tumblr along. The edge of the bowl here let me back this up little bit okay you see this ridge like on a globe it's you know be. Like the equator basically it's where the top and the bottom of the half a top-half bottom half of the ball meets. Also the top right here this is the kind. This is top of the kind where the wing nut is its about the same height as. Inside a half of the book so i feel my. Media up just about to the line. To you know where the top part of the. Comb still shows i had a forum member /. 280g reloading calm please check it out joins it if you like it we try to help. Everybody out and you know friendly group of people, but he was asking he. Just got a tumblr i believe it was the don't quote me I'm going off top of my head midway model 1297 so it's a bit. Smaller but it should be fine for what. He's doing he's just starting out right now, and he got a good deal on it so at. Any rate fill your media up about the. Some distance and you should be good to. Go now the media that i use i don't. Spend the big bucks on lyman brand i. No they're good and I've got friends that use them and I'm not saying anything bad about them I'm on a budget i work with the budget so i go to. Outsmart and two years ago into petsmart. Bought a huge bag of crushed walnut. Which is what you're buying when you buy. Up like lyman brand or midway brand. Media they're all crushed walnut i get. This back in the lizard betty section it. Comes untreated but you get a huge. Bag flight 19 bucks like said about two. Years ago and i haven't even begun to run out and you can treat it at home and. I'll talk to you a little bit about treating it too but that's what that is. Fine crushed walnut now word of caution. No I'm not wearing gloves I've got to. Sink right outside that once i get done. I go wash my hands i don't eat or drink while I'm doing any of this when you're. Cleaning brass there are contaminants. That comes out of your primer pockets the primer that's in it of the mixture. And stuff that's ignited there's a. Little of lead exposure saying that there's. Also a bit of a dust pick up what i usually do is when I'm ready to dump. This i go over next to my window with. The fan blowing so that the dust particle goes up and out the window with the fan so you do want to have some exhaust for my larger amount i just. Store it in this cat litter box this is. The same walnut' media except this is. Untreated i didn't have a need to treat. This one yet as you see i still got a. Good size so if ever run out what's. In my tumblr and the two cans i can move. On to this like i said it's going to last your life well pretty down dag on. Close to the lifetime now treating the. Media what i do is a don't don't get any. Kind of polish that's got ammonia in it. Ammonia will hurt your brass so what i. Do is I'll take whatever container that. I'm going to be storing it in so let's say I'm gonna store it in this bucket i use wicked metal polish you get them up. Most flying j truck stops you can use mother's there's you can use fits it's. Got money in it put a couple drops in. It covers it up let it air out for a couple of days lets the money evaporate. But with a wicked metal polish it will. Last you a long time to squeeze the bottle one two three drops maybe about. Three dime size drops cover it up mix it. Up real good shake your bucket. Then it's ready to go it's that simple. It's no rocket science or else i can't. Do it any rate i got a big folder can. I've got a mixture of 270 brass and 6.5. Grendel brass and there's quite a bit in. There i just dumped almir ok put the lid. On washer wingnut you don't want to over. Tighten this he'll crack the lid but you do want to get to somewhat tight so it's not rivaling i just go by feel now like. I said you hear this it's going to be a. Little bit loud to begin with once the. Cases fill up you'll notice you'll get. Quite so let me go ahead and plug it in. Ok now right there. It's moving together the cases are. Filling up I've not changed my voice allowing us in any way now it's at its. Prime it's just going to sit there and. That's a lot it's going to get during the whole tumble section session. So before i and let me show you what i. Used to sift my brass with okay get in a. Walmart it's just a plastic bucket made. In china so you know they got to good. Use one I've got. Colander that i drilled the holes a. Little bit bigger a couple more brides. Trying to fill up that the media will fall through but not the brass I've got. Two holes couple of bolts mountains. Mounted to it i picture tumblr up for it. In here the media falls through the. Brass stays on top shake it and you get. The brass out or the media out of the. Brass pick each price up shake it what have you cool thing is there's an opening here once you get all your brass. Cleaned out you pick it up for all your. Media back into your tumblr you're good to go i don't know what two three bucks. Maybe already had the colander couple. Bolts wing nuts probably not even that much i paid a dollar for the bucket. Probably got at the dollar tree maybe. Walmart i can't remember but that's what. I used to sit now i also got some of. This cabala's case polish i really. Haven't tried it yet i got at the yard sale so i couldn't tell you how it goes. That's just another product out there but at any rate. Excellent tumblr lasted me two. Years now and it's still running a new. Highly recommended if you got the money i think they're like 80 bucks i got on. Cell 65 but uh take the lid off like. Quit. Now you can see the dust kind of fooling. Around there let's get up the tripod. And that's about a good decent right if. You open your tumblr up and you see that the move around like is that's pretty. Good right now i might have too much brass and it might be a little sluggish but run this on a couple two three hours. No I'll look good in china. Hope it works out for you and we'll get. You on the flip side. You.

Hey guys lock and load channel here one. Do a quick review for you today on a product that i just purchased as you know i reload and i'm always looking for a better easier way to clean brats. That's probably the one part of reloading that i really do not enjoy is clean the brats there really isn't a good way of doing it i've been tumbling using a corn cob media for most of my. Brass i've got a line of turbo tumbler. It does okay it takes anywhere from two. To three hours depending on how dirty the brass is i like to tumble it before i run through my dies so i don't scratch. The dies so what i have behind me here is i've got some 40 smith & wesson cases some of them i've already tumbled and then i have some that are dirty that i'm going to run through this this new hornaday lock and load cleaner i got. This from midway usa okay it's a sonic. Cleaner there's different ways of cleaning brass this was on sale so i thought i would try it made it sound. Pretty simple and easy i know there's also a rotary method of wet method we. Put your brass in in a rotary tumbler with steel pins i have a friend of mine. That does that and he said that works real well i don't have one of those but. I thought i would try this i've been. Using this this sauna cleaner now for. About three weeks but i'm not gonna saying it i'll let you see how it does and then i'll give you my impressions and then you can make up your mind what you think but let's go ahead get started here i'll show you what i got going and we'll see how it does okay guys here's. What we got going this is the sonic cleaner alright it's pretty nice little. Unit not as big a hopper who i thought. It would have but not too small either. It does okay stainless steel container and it has this little basket here that. You put your brass in okay and then you. Put your solution inside the cleaner and. Drop that down in there and then what it has is a timer here for how many seconds. You want to want to run it to uh the cleaner is one hundred eighty two eighty three eighty and four eighty. Resolved 90 seconds - okay so it's 90. 180 - 83 80 40 okay and then just has an on/off switch so pretty easy to operate you do have to. Use this cleaner this is a sonic it's. Called one-shot a cartridge case formula. By hornaday calls for a 41 ratio or half. Ounce of solution - 20 ounces of distilled water i have a pre-measured plastic cup i use. But i filter the line it's 20 ounces of water and then i add a basically 2 cap. For this one shot - the cleaner and that. Will do you ok what i have here show you. Up close here is 40 smith & wesson cases. That i've taken to the range if these are once fired okay the one on the left. Here i ran through the corncob media and. That's in the regular tumbler and this. Camera doesn't want to focus but it come. Out pretty good come up pretty clean. Okay that's about two hours of tumbling. And then on the left here you see is the. Dirty breath i haven't done anything with it all okay these have not been d primed or anything these are right from the range and like i said i clean these before i run them through my size or die so i've got 20 or so cases of each so. What i want to do is like i said this has already been tumbled so i'm going to compare after a couple cycles in the. Sonic cleaner here what they look like. Compared to two hours in the in the. Corncob media vibratory tumbler so we'll. Go ahead and we'll get this set up and clean and i'll show you how to how to mix it okay what i have here is a. Remeasured cup this is 20 ounces of distilled water now what i've done is. I've used hot water it doesn't say on. The instructions whether you use hot or cold i just think hot would clean better it seems to anyway so i've actually this. Is a hot tap water and then i put in the. Microwave for a couple minutes just to get it get a good and hot okay so it's. 20 ounces of water. And then this is the cleaner i having. This little pan here this is exactly. Half ounce okay so dump that into the. Water and there's your mixture okay so. Next i want to go ahead and take my basket here and put my dirty brass in it. And again this is a brass right from the. Range right from the ground once fired. We'll go ahead and put that in there put. The lid on and i've tried each setting. Here and i found that the 480 works the. Best and again if it doesn't clean it. You know i've actually gone a couple times so we'll go ahead and run that and. I'm back here in a few minutes when it's. Done okay we're back so that's eight. Minutes of cleaning let's check it out so hot look all right not bad look. Pretty good still some grime on them the. Insides are not too bad but that's. That's just after eight minutes okay now again compared to the tumbled ones. Not quite as clean but definitely. Cleaner and if you can see the water there there's definitely some grime. Laying the bottom of that pan so let's go ahead and run it another cycle up 480. Seconds and we'll come back and check be. Right back. Okay got a couple seconds here and this will be done and we'll check them out this will be the second run-through so. This will be a total of 16 minutes. Looking pretty good inside of cases very. Nice and clean you can see that nice. Outsides looking better still a little. Bit of grime it's not bad overall say. They're not too bad now it's compared to. The tumbled cases the tumble case are a. Little bit a little bit shinier now the big difference is though if you look the inside of the sonic case is much cleaner. Than the inside of the tumbled case but. The outside the tumbled case is cleaner than the outside of the sonic case so what we're going to do is we're going to. Go one more round here we're going to go. Eight more minutes that'll be a total of twenty four minutes and we'll see how it. Looks after that. Okay that's three cycles of eight. Minutes peace 24 minutes and generally. That's what i run and i consider the. Results acceptable as you can see. Outside the case is clean inside the. Case is clean i don't have the primers. Punched out yet but that is the other advantage of this over the vibratory. Media tumbler is that it will clean the primer pockets so is one better than the. Other i don't know but if you compare. We'll do a side by side here and i'll let you be the judge okay i got them all dried off here and. On the right i have the brass that just came out of a 24 minute cleaning cycle. On the corner de sonnet cleaner and this. Is a two hour cleaning in the vibratory. Lime and media tumbler so what do you. Think i would say that they're. Definitely both clean the outside of the cases are definitely clean but the cases. From the tumbler vibratory tumbler or shinier okay now that's not a big deal. To me i just want clean cases it did. Take longer to get this and then if you look at the inside of cases as i showed. You before the sonic cleaner definitely gets the inside the cases cleaner than the vibratory tumbler now once once i do this i punch the. Primers up i have dirty primer pockets. To clean and that's a pain in the ass the vibratory tumbler deterred the. Alignment vibratory tumbler will not clean the primer pockets whereas the. Horner day sonic cleaner will so which. Is better i don't think one's better than the other they both have advantages and they both have disadvantages what i've. Decided to do was use both in combination when i first get my. Range brass back after shooting it first. Thing i do before i do any is i usually just throw it in here for about an hour okay let it tumble it gets it clean. Enough that i can run through my sizing die and that's my main concern i don't want any grit or grime on or to scratch the die so i run it through here first for about an hour okay and it gets it. Clean enough that i can size it i punched the primer out sized then i take. The cases and put it into the sonic. Cleaner and run it three cycles which is. Twenty four minutes and it gets it nice. And clean on the inside and it cleans. The primer pocket so i don't have to take the little brush and clean the primer pockets out which on these ones i do after they tumble two hours i still. Have to punch the primers out and clean the primers pockets so as far as time. Saver i guess it's about a draw because. I'm still using this an hour and about almost a half an hour on that so i'm saving maybe a half an hour okay then. You have cost the media this corncob. Media you can buy five pound bag for. Three bucks at last quite a while months. Whereas you have to buy this sonic. Cleaner for the sonic solution for the. Sonic cleaner okay and this runs about 17 dollars for 32 ounces but it does. Last a while i don't know this was $69 on sale from. 100 this was regular price i think i. Paid $69 for 10 years ago so i don't. Know i just decided to use them both i. Still i still haven't found an optimal. Way one-step process i am looking at the. Rotary cleaning that i mentioned earlier it's a wet cleaning in a rotary drum. That has steel pins friend of mine uses. It as you can throw any kuan and you want in there and you tumble it for. Three hours and take it out they look like brand-new cases inside out and primer pockets the media never wears there is no solution to make send you just used on dish soap and i think they use a lemon shine for to make brass nice. And bright so that may be something i'm. Going to look at down the road i thought i would give this a try the other drawback is you can put up to 150 pistol. Cases in here at a time we're in the. Sonic cleaner here as you can see it's. Quite smaller you know you can only get. Maybe 50 cases okay so capacity is another issue if. You're in a big hurry the sonic cleaner. Would be the way to go but anyway guys i just wanted to show you how that works i've seen these put on midway for a while and i thought i always want to try it see how it worked out. Again you know these cases are clean enough to to resize and reload. Definitely i've saved for me the big. Advantage is it cleans the primer pockets now i don't have to mess around with a brush that's really the biggest thing for me so i still use them both tumblin menhir sonic and sonic them than. Air hour-and-a-half total and i got nice clean cases the only other thing the. Only drawback is they're wet okay so you got to let them sit overnight and dry out put a fan on them or whatever but then you do have nice clean cases so all in all they're both. Okay i guess if they have their drawbacks and their advantages so all. Right guys just want to give you a quick review on that let you know my thoughts and i appreciate you watching later.

Frankford Arsenal® Brass-Cleaning Packs
Hey guys what's up found you here tonight i want to talk about the. Frankford arsenal tumblr that i bought. So it's called a quick and easy case. Tumbler the whole package comes with the. Tumbler itself comes with brass polish. And then it also comes with bucket with. The media then it comes with the actual. Media separator you basically pour your. Shells into there with the media and. Media folds out and you basically just. Left with the cases it also comes with. Obviously a top for the tumbler with its. Parts and so forth and then a top for. The bucket and then it also comes with. These little shields that you put. On the bucket i guess to prevent media flying out all over which unless you. Like spinning, it like a madman it's really not going to be flying all over. The place and i actually found those just to get in the way so i don't really use them but i used to do ultrasonic. Cleaning for my brass before i would. Load them and ultrasonic cleaning works. Well if you get down your method and you. Know exactly what you're trying to achieve and do i would say that it. Doesn't get as clean as tumbling because. Tumbling you're basically polishing the. Outside of the brass whereas when you do. I'll just sonic cleaning you're basically vibrating everything off of. The metal so it's not as smooth i mean. You get the brass clean but it's not as clean and then the other thing is once. You finish actually i could just say. Using that they'll just on a cleaner then you have to let all the brass. Trolley and that take at least you know elite i would but. It took me more than a day on most among. Because especially if you leave the primer and it's even worse if you leave in the spent primer before you before. You clean them then what happens is once. You pop out those primers when you think you're ready to load there could still be water in there and then it gets your powder wet and then you can end up with rounds that don't even work you know they won't fire because all the powder got messed up so out of i guess i out of. Times sake i went with the tumbler and. The other thing with ultrasonic clean. Though is it does clean the brass and it. Takes like 15 minutes but it like i said. That wait time that you have too actually. Be able to load the brass it's its. Actually longer than if you just tumbled the media that this comes with is. Corn cob and it works pretty good I'll. Show you my brass that i have done her. Just so you could zoom in on. Sometimes the camera doesn't know i like to focus. And there we go so i mean it gets them. Nice and shiny and the other thing is to. This type of level of like i say. Shininess takes only like two hours i. Just i think these i did tumble with the. Primers out you can see they're still there's still some dirt in there. And stuff but it's definitely clean enough for a new primer and yeah I've. Had no issues as far as my loadings concerned and using those you can use. Different media though you can. Use walnut shell and there's even peopled. That use the stainless steel beads the stainless steel beads are expensive though they're about i remember what the. Cost was but it was a lot and i was looking at probably like 100 plus dollars in media in a decent size tumblr. Bigger than this but it was still quite an investment I'm going to look into it again but the other thing too is the stainless steel beads last pretty much. Forever because stainless steel is. Stronger than the brass is but yeah so. Like i said it comes with the polish and the chro-cop media and it does it. Gets the job done i guess that takes about two hours the system is pretty. Quiet for what you're doing i mean I've had other tumblers for other stuff, and they were pretty lad this one has good. Shock absorption on the bottom and it. Doesn't do't it doesn't make too much. Down for what it is and basically what i. Do is i just put it on my reloading bench and just close the door and. Nobody's bothered by to my house i don't i don't hear it outside of the whole way so it's definitely good for my. Use and the other thing that's nice too. Is the ultrasonic cleaner can only hold. I think maybe about two hundred brants. Maybe 250 this one can hold about 500. And i think that's definitely a bonus. Now the only thing that i caution you. With is when you do the brass polish make sure that you put the media in put. The polish in and let it run for a good amount of time because if you don't and. The polish is gummed up on some of the. The media and it sits inside the brass. It literally like fuses itself to the brass and you have to go in there with like a toothpick and start on each and every piece of brass you have to go and pluck out all the little media pieces. You have to push them off and that is just total waste of time so you have to really make sure that it blends in good with the media and that's basically it. If you guys got any questions comments. Or anything you know let me know and. Please rate and subscribe all right. Thanks.
