Lortone is known for having some of the best hobby/light use tumblers. This model has two rubber barrels. Which is great for doing two stages at once, or having two different types of rocks going. Even a beginner can run this-- its literally plug and play ;)
You will need to buy grit also-- none included with this piece. This is the one area I'd recommend grown up involvement. My son and 5 yr old daughter can load, sort and wash the rocks. But I add the dry powder. Some of the grits/polishes are ultra fine, and I cannot imagine that inhaling that stuff could be ok.
It runs much quieter then I thought it would considering it's a spinning jug of rocks. But there is for sure some noise involved. This can't go in your kids bedroom! Or your own! Though in saying that I will say that it does provide a little bit of a white noise sound after a while that I have gotten used to. Maybe it would not be too bad as a background noise if you need to drown out traffic etc. But for most, the best location is an entry, garage or shed. It runs constantly, day and night, and the motor box stays warm-- though not hot. So I wouldn't leave it where you can't check on it once in a while or where there would be a danger of something falling on it.
