Master Tumbler Kit
The Frankford Arsenal Case Tumbler provides a quick, easy and economical means to clean your brass. Used in conjunction with the FrankFord Arsenal walnut and corn cob media, the Quick-N-EZ Tumbler removes fouling, Lube and oxidation quickly and conveniently. It will hold up to 600 9mm or 350 .223 cases. The Kit includes Quick-N-EZ Case Tumbler, Quick-N-EZ Rotary Media Seperator, 4 oz Brass polish, 3 lb Cleaning Media and a Plastic Bucket.
Fill the cleaning bowl about 2/3 full of cleaning or polishing media. Set the tumbler on a flat concrete surface and plug it in. Add any amount of brass you desire, up to maximum capacity. Capacity will vary with the size of the cases being cleaned. In general, once the cleaning media is in the tumbler, you can continue to add brass to your media until you see the tumbling action of the brass become sluggish. Obviously, with less tumbling action, you will get less cleaning action. If you put too much brass in and the action slows down, simply remove some of the brass.
Tumble your brass until it is clean. If you are merely cleaning your brass, 30 minutes to an hour will normally remove all dirt and grease. If you want to polish the tarnish or powder stain from brass, you will need to use treated media or add ammonia-free brass polish to untreated media and then tumble for several hours. Just check the brass periodically for progress.
1.Clean your brass before polishing with “untreated” ground walnut shells. This simply removes the dirt, grit, or bullet lube from the cases so they can be inspected. This will insure that any dirt and grit left on the case won't get into your sizing die and wear it out prematurely.
2. Resize and de-prime your brass before polishing.
3. The media you use to clean and polish your cases will not wear out, but it will become “loaded up” with bullet lube, polish, powder residue, and dirt. When it does, you can simply throw it out, or it can be recharged with brass polish.
4. If you reload for a variety of different guns, you may need to obtain a few extra buckets in which to keep your different cleaning and polishing medias while they are not in use. Dirtier loads will need to be cleaned with fresher media than clean burning loads. Shooting conditions can also dirty your brass more than normal. We recommend keeping three buckets on hand to contain media in different stages of use: #1 for untreated “cleaning media;” #2 for new, barely used treated “polishing” media; and #3 for well-used, “loaded-up” media.
5. If you use your tumbler to Moly-coat bullets, we recommend using a separate bowl from the one you use to tumble brass.

The kit is complete. All you do is supply the brass and electric, and you're cleaning within minutes. The in-line power switch is a nice feature and the unit is surprisingly on the quiet side for something inherently noisy. The media separator kit assembles in a snap, literally (more later). Once you've tumbled your brass hang the separator over the bucket, open it up, pour the media and brass into the separator, lock it, spin it roughly a dozen times until you don't see anymore media coming out... and presto, clean empty brass.
The vibratory tumbler works great. I have no reason to suspect it won't last years and it really cleans well. The vibrations keep the media moving at a steady pace so everything is rotated throughout. I was actually surprised how much cleaning action there is yet the lid is almost unnecessary. In fact I didn't even use the lid for the first batch and no media bounced out. Speaking of the lid, I agree with others that a nicer knob is needed instead of the cheapo wingnut. Some also suggest placing strips of used dryer sheets and quickly found they can slow down the cleaning process. If you intend to use them, try cutting them into squares that will move with the flow instead of resisting it. I also find the included polish to work well. I haven't looked at refills because I assume there are other products more cost efficient, just stay away from anything with ammonia in it. Options I've read about include citrus and car finish products.
The shortcomings are on execution of the separator "hardware"... ie plastic parts. The separator cage itself is plenty heavy for doing it's job. The cage strength is on par with the sturdiness of the plastic bucket.Read more ›
First I'll cover the tumbler: It has a nice large capacity. It is perfectly isolated from vibration and will not walk across the table or even move a little over many hours of operation. It has a clear lid that is an unanticipated convenience as it saves you from having to stop the machine and open up the lid to inspect your progress. It is very quiet - provided you don't do something silly like overload it or don't screw the lid down tightly enough to fully engage it (four simple hand turns from the time the wingnut contacts the washer).
Thats the good news. The bad news isn't so bad... its just that you can buy other components that will be more effective and much less expensively than the kit items. You can do better and here's how:
-- Use Nu Finish car polish instead of the citrus-smelling brass polish in the kit. I admit the citrus smell is nice. Also ask yourself how many half-empty bottles of cheap car polish are in your garage. They'll work fine too most likely.
--Use crushed walnut lizard terrarium bedding here at Amazon instead of the corncob media in this kit. The pet bedding idea is discussed all over the various Amazon tumbler reviews and it really is perfectly effective and much cheaper. Most tumbler mfrs will happily sell you ... walnut tumbling media. Not to be overlooked: The corncob media that comes in this kit is subject to static electricity and this helps spread it around your workshop.Read more ›

Tumbler Pros -

+ East to Use; just add the corn media (included) and polishing fluid (included), add the dirty shells, put on the lid, and run for 30 minutes to an hour (see video)
+ Works Well; very pleased with the how clean the shells get
+ Not Too Loud; doesn't make anywhere near the noise I expected it to
- Center Post; this can vibrate loose after a few uses, but easily corrected by tightening it before each use
Separator Pros -
+ Easy to Assemble; took under 5-minutes to put together
+ Easy to Use; just dump in the corn media and shells directly from the tumbler, attach the shields (optional), and give it a few turns (see video)
+ Works Well; does a good job at removing the cleaning media from the shells
Separator Cons -
- Plastic Construction; care should be taken not to stress the parts
Overall, I am very happy with this kit and believe it is a fairly good value for the novice reloader.

Honestly I can't tell you anything about this tumbler, I gave it away.Published 17 days ago by Hoss
For the price, you can't beat this set. I wanted my brass to be clean on the inside too, so I bought a wet tumbler. The wet tumbler is still in the box, and I still use this one. Read morePublished 20 days ago by RatherDashing
