Thumler's Model A-R6 Rock Tumbler



The Thumler's A-R6 is a rock tumbler for the experienced person or for the beginner who has access to lots of rock. The metal frame and heavy-duty, overload-protected, maintenance-free motor easily turns the nine-pound capacity barrel. This tumbler quickly converts to run a single Thumler's three-pound barrel (sold separately). The video below shows how easily this machine converts from a large capacity tumbler to a small capacity tumbler.

The Model A-R6 is supplied with a single nine-pound rubber barrel. If you fill this barrel about 1/2 to 2/3 full of rock as recommended it will process about six pounds of rock. The soft rubber barrel will tumble your stones with a minimum amount of noise. An instruction book is included that will guide you through tumbling your first batch of rock.

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

This video shows how easy it is to convert the Thumler's A-R6 rock tumbler to a small-capacity tumbler similar to the Thumler's A-R1 tumbler.


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.
