Lortone Model QT6 Rock Tumbler

  • Tumbles about four pounds of rough.
  • Tumbles larger pieces of rough.
  • Quiet rubber barrel.
  • Easy to use.
  • Durable metal frame.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Instruction book.
The Lortone Model QT6 rock tumbler is our personal favorite. It has a large six-pound barrel that will tumble a nice amount of rock and will allow you to tumble some larger pieces. And, it is made of a soft rubber that runs with a minimum amount of noise. We have one of these running in our home most of the time.

This machine is adequately powered. It has the same heavy-duty, maintenance-free motor used for Lortone's twelve pound machines - so it will give many years of service and turn this six-pound barrel without overloading. It also has a metal frame, metal drive shafts and durable construction. The moving parts can easily be replaced if you should use the machine long enough to wear them out.

This is a great machine for the experienced person or a beginner who knows that the hobby will be continued. Happy tumbling!

For Best Polishing Results:

If you are really serious about getting a high quality polish we recommend getting a separate barrel and using it exclusively for the polishing step. A dedicated barrel for polish (and a thorough cleaning of your rocks after the 600 grit step) will help avoid grit contamination of your polishing step.
