Thumler's Ultra-Vibe 10 Industrial Rock Tumbler / Brass Polisher
This is the "industrial" model designed for rocks!
Removable, heavy polyethylene bowl with lid
Three quart capacity (10 pounds of rocks / 125-400 cartridge cases)

Ball bearing motor operates on 115 volts
Thermally protected for safety - 1.12 amps

Vibratory tumblers are a lot faster and a lot more economical than rotary tumblers.
The Ultra-Vibe 10 tumbler will do the rough cut in just a few days and the prepolish
and polish steps in just two or three days each. The UV-10 tumbler also works great
for polishing brass gun shell cartridges.
The Thumler's Model UV-10 is supplied with a single ten pound bowl which will process
about ten pounds of rock. It has a heavy-duty, maintenance-free motor, durable base and
large capacity barrel. This is the heavy duty industrial version of the UV-10.
The tumbler is supplied with instructions that will guide you through tumbling your first
batch of rock. You can also watch the video below and read an article about
how we use the UV-10 tumbler.
We want you to enjoy this hobby as much as we do.
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.
