The Lortone Model 3A Rock Tumbler

Why is it Our Best-Selling Tumbler?

  • Easy to use.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Very durable.
  • Metal frame.
  • Quiet rubber barrel.
  • Economical to operate.
  • Very low maintenance.
The Lortone Model 3A is a perfect rock tumbler for the beginner. It is easy-to-use, inexpensive, and very durable. The metal frame, maintenance-free motor and heavy-duty rubber barrel will operate reliably through years of regular use.

The Model 3A has a single rubber barrel. Two pounds of agate, jasper or other quartz-type rock will fill the barrel to the recommended operating capacity. The soft rubber barrel tumbles your stones with a minimum amount of noise - about as much noise as vigorously shaking a carton of orange juice that is about 1/2 full.

The tumbler is supplied with an instruction book that will guide you through tumbling your first batch of rock and teach you how to take care of the machine.

Tumbling grit, polish and rough rock are sold separately. See below.

We hope you to enjoy this hobby as much as we do.
