    Default What a difference a day makes

    Before and after of some pachinko balls that came with my recent purchase.

    24 hours in the tumbler with walnut shells and mother's mag polish.

    The picture doesn't do it justice, but the difference is unreal.

    That's quite a difference. How many can you tumble in each batch? Did you use a drum tumbler like those ones at Harbor Freight?

    The double drum tumbler from Harbor Freight is what I use. I don't count how many go in each drum, but I filled each about 1/3 of the way which is roughly 250 - 300 balls.

    So running the two drums for 24 hours, it's roughly 500 - 600 per day. I did this for 4 days with no problems.
